Repository searchThis is Siebel tools inbuilt search feature. It can be used to find all objects with specific keyword in entire repository. I use it to find the use of profile attributes in scripts or in calculated fields, search spec etc... Pretty neat.
|To start search go to Tools> Search Repository|
|Enter keyword and click Search Now|
It's not super fast but it's best way to be sure.
Alternative of genbscript.exeI still meet few developers who run genbscript every time after compiling srf. There is much easier way to generate browser scripts available.
As shown above, one can configure tools to update browser scripts automatically after every compile.
Add multiple objects to one sif file.There is no need to create separate sif file for each object. After adding one object just leave the archive window aside and go to object explorer to pick another object and add to save archive.

Create list of values from toolsYes, One can create list of values from Siebel Tools. For this menu to appear your login needs to have Siebel administrator responsibility. I love this interface, it is so much better than Siebel client.
Compare objectsSiebel Tools provide unique way of comparing objects, its not limited to comparing objects with a sif file. Once can compare two similar objects like two business components or applets in same repository or a different repository.

Copy items from one object to otherThis is one of the neat hidden feature of Siebel tools. While comparing two objects one can use this feature to copy some objects from one object to other.

Bookmarks!This is one of my favorite hack. I bookmark all the objects of projects that I am working on, it makes really easy to navigate back an forth without typing.
To bookmark any object list just open the bookmark pane and click the plus sign. And double click on the list to find the objects again, no typing required!
