Where does RTC get the Description for a Follup-up Action?

Susan Hanson (1.6k2192194) | asked Apr 24 '14, 6:02 a.m.
In RTC, when you have a Follow-up Action selected/enabled and you click on it, it fills in the Name and (I guess) the Description to the right of the lists of Preconditions and Follow-up actions.  Where does it get this description from?  I had thought it was from the Text of the Feature Description tab on the Information tab of the Participant Feature project.  However, I have Text in mine and it is not showing up.

I don't see anywhere else really that has a Description field in either the plugin.xml of the Participant project or the feature.xml in the Participant Feature project.

So it looks like Eclipse doesn't display that in the client UI?  I have to actually hack the xml directly?

it does, just not obvious..

right click on the extension name

and then you'll get the UI to edit
