is there a way to get listed in the Window-> Texture Manager Dialog if custom files are used? It seems no message is sent to shaders that could be responded to.

the Texture Manager has nothing to do with messages. This manager will check all shaders of the given material. Only if the found shader is a Bitmap shader it will handle the image file referenced by this Bitmap shader. So I'm afraid that it is currently not possible for the Texture Manager to handle assets of other shaders.

(In contrast the old "Textures" tab sends asset related messages to the materials etc. to build its list).

Best wishes,
