Shift Right Click Custom Menu

Currently, on Shift Right Click, we get the snap menu in Bricscad. How do we point this to a custom menu?

    customize, mouse? right click new button, but this seems to allow just one command.... not a menu

  • Correct. But by default, it brings up the snap menu. It seems there has to be a way to set it to another custom menu.
    I could always replace the items in the snap menu, but that seems sloppy.

  • You can display any menu using this command format for the CUI tool:
    $p0=<name_of_menu_group>.<alias_of_menu> $p0=*
    $p0=bricscad.pop3 $p0=*

    The aliases can be found in the _Customize dialog.

  • Thanks Roy.
    The one issue I am not grasping is where are the aliases located for the name of the menu group?
    So, If I create a menugroup named "robs-shorts" where do I find / create an alias?

  • Every main or partial CUI constitutes a menu group. And a menu group does not have an alias.
    If you create a new partial CUI file in the _Customize dialog you will see that it has a 'Main Menus' node in the left panel on the Menus tab. Right-click that node and choose 'Append main menu'. This will create a new menu. An alias is assigned automatically.

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
