Yes, you are correct. I find FM's menu capability very limiting. If you can afford it, look at Dacon's Menu Control, which will allow you to create menus, sub-menus, disable menu entries on the fly, remove window widgets, etc. It is very easy to use. See it at Link

It is not true that you can't add new menus and run scripts. While it's certainly true that plug-ins will give you more, there's quite a bit you can do with 8's menus. It is a bit difficult to figure out how to do it however.

Sure you can add menus, but you can't disable a menu entry, you can't create flyouts and you can't use a valuelist as a flyout, you can't remove window widgets, and my all time favorite: those jokers added the Exit command onto the 1st menu, which can't be removed.

Here is an example of what I want...

- Delete all entries from file menu except exit

- Add entry to file menu "Invoices" and have it run the scrip "start invoices"

- Add entry to file menu "Workorders" and have it run the scrip "start Workorders"

and so on...

I can't see how to do this with the FM8 Dev custom menu function

Am I missing something or is this what your looking for?

Choose the action button. Note that I removed all from the File drop-menu except "Invoices" (set to run a script) and "Exit" (I'm a Mac user so . . .)
