Thanks for Comicster and I really do like the extensions.

As you know, I'm working (slowly) on a file management set of extensions for comicster to handle local files in my collection. It seems I'm going to have a number of functions that I would like to group into a submenu on the tools menu or otherwise organize. I would ask for some way to specify submenus or orderings or something. I'm afraid I don't really have good ideas on how it should be done.

I had also mentioned adding things to context menus of items as well which would be nice.

I know I could create my own UI by skinning or just being activated from an ITool which would portal all my functions but I'd rather keep the my functions as integrated as tightly as possible to the default UI. Also, I don't really like creating UIs because mine are always ugly :)

I may spend sometime thinking on interface changes that might allow submenus if you might agree and/or don't have a good idea on how to do it.

    I'd +1 the ideas for sub-menus and context menus. I think I've talked about it to Matt before about both of the ideas a while ago when the release was still pretty new.

    It might be tricky to code it into the extension manager, but I think it would be a great feature for API developers.
