Scatter Objects Addon: Scatter Objects doesn't appear in F3 search.

Blender Version
Broken: version: 2.91.0 Alpha, branch: master, commit date: 2020-09-16 05:28, hash: rB7e8cba98b6f0
Worked: (newest version of Blender that worked as expected)

Short description of error
The "Object: Scatter Objects" action that was available in the search menu does not appear when searching "scatter" making the add-on unusable . Happens in 2.90 and 2.91 Alpha but not in 2.83, so possibly related to the new search.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Open any file. Create two mesh objects and select one first then the other. Perform an F3 search for "scatter".

(This .blend is just two cubes in the default scene.)

Sorry for any errors in my report.

Event Timeline

Try this:

For those experiencing issues with some operators not showing up in the search operator, try these steps:

  1. From the top of Blender select Edit -> Preferences.
  2. From the list of tabs on the right, select Interface.
  3. Now enable the option Developer Extras.
  4. Save your preferences. Now you should be able to find the command you're looking for in the search operator.

This is just a temporary fix. As this task explains, almost everything in Blender should be updated so they're accessable in the search operator without adjusting settings. But until then, this is a work around.

But generally speaking, this is a duplicate of T76227: Make All Operators Accessible from Menus, will merge these reports.
