How to create a new custom menu in Act?

Hello, 

 

I would like to know how to create a new root menu in the top menu bar in Act Premium?

I already know how to create a custom command and place it in a existing menu or how to add an existing menu somewhere else. But I would like to be able to create a specific menu called let's say 'Custom Command' and place here all my custom commands.

 

See the screen shot as an example:

Thanks

Gregory

Adding a new menu or a submenu can be do but that must be done as an addon or a plugin using SDK programming.

Hello Brittany,

I read that article. It has 3 topics.
1 - How ti change the menu displays
2 - How to add a custom command or EXISTING menu Command to a toolbar
3 - How to add a custom item to a menu.

None of these explains how to add a NEW menu to a toolbar.
