How to get a Service into the "Search" group?

  • I've added a system service to my app. I'd like it to appear in the "Search" group of the Services menu (where "Look Up in Dictionary" and "Search With Google" are) rather than the "Text" group.

    I would have guessed there is some key-value pair I could set in the NSServices dictionary in Info.plist, but as far as I can tell my NSServices looks just like Safari's.
