Main menu

Recommended Posts

Might it be worth considering restructuring the Main menu which is getting longer and longer and organize the items in sub items to clean it up?

I think you are talking about different "main menus" here. 😉

 

@Stefan Glienke Yes, it's getting larger (which annoys me too sometimes), but do you really use all the experts? You could simply disable those you don't use which removes them from the menu.

 

Organizing it into submenus would be a major change since currently the menu is built by enumerating all the experts and adding an entry for all that are active.

 

Feel free to submit a feature request though. One day I might get bored enough to do it or maybe somebody else does it and submits a patch.

Nah, in fact I only use a fraction of what GExperts offers, I just cba to disable those that I don't need.

Oh... This is the GExperts sub forum...

I didn't notice that so I actually thought you meant the IDE main menu (which is what I was talking about). Well then, pls ignore what I said.

They can start by getting rid of the Refactor menu - and that might also improve the stability of the IDE.

You can rename/remove refactoride###.bpl file

Yes but that also removes the stuff I use and which actually works (mostly): "Find References" and "Rename".

@Anders Melander, we should maybe start another thread, in andother sub-forum, but i have also made that mistake when reading and commenting. The sub-forum name is IMHO visually too suppressed.

Actually: It should be easy for yet another expert (yet another GExperts menu entry 😉) to hide some of the menu entries of the IDE. Or, since there is already an expert for changing the menu shortcuts of the IDE, it could be extended to also allow hiding those entries.

In that case obviously not.

Actually it might. One of my grieves with the Refactor menu item is that if you accidentally move the mouse over the menu item (e.g. on the way to the View or Project menu item) then there's a noticeable delay (very noticeable on low end systems) as the IDE loads the refactor stuff (among it the J# run time I suspect) in order to populate the sub menu.

Agree, but I don't think I'll have more to contribute on the subject.
