    hello,

    I have created a submenu in the plugins menu to group my plugins.  I want to give that menu an icon.  how would I go about doing that?

    Hello,

    can you tell us a little bit more on how you exactly "created a submenu in the plugins menu" ?

    Best wishes,

    I can't speak for Ama, of course, but I have wondered something similar.

    Taking the plugins distributed with c4d as an example, they add a submenu to the "Plugins" menu called "Cinema4dsdk". A lot of the commands in this submenu have icons ("Spherify" and "Triangulate", for instance). Would it be possible to add an icon to the "Cinema4dsdk" menu item itself? Here's a quick mockup:

    As a plugin developer, it would be nice to be able to make your plugins submenu unique in this way.

    Hello,

    it is not possible to edit the "Plugins" submenus in such a way.

    Hi,

    I have created the menu structure I wanted.  I just can't figure out how to add an icon.  From what you are saying, there is absolutely no way of adding an icon to a custom created submenu correct?

    That would be a nice sdk addition for those of us who group our plugins under our own submenu.  Just poking the bear (and running away).

    Hello,

    in Cinema's menus there are only icons for commands, objects, tools etc. but not for actual (sub-)menus. So you won't find such a menu icon anywhere in Cinema and there is no way to edit this menu to add such an icon. But thanks for suggesting this idea.

    Best wishes,
    Sebastian

    Thanks, I second the feature request for the SDK.
