Hello "Symenu fans",
I suddenly realized that we are close to Christmas and I have said to myself: "I am going to make my wish list for SyMenu".
Logically I do not expect everything to arrive before Christmas, but if we go organizing this may help Gian to know what is the most expected feature of all because it is now distributed throughout all the Forum. (Honestly I have to say that I am influenced by the Kano model with which I am actually working)

After the big improvement of program graphics of the last version, My SyMenu three "wish list" in order is:
1st) To be alerted in all SPS updates even with the SPS Apps with "Build in updater" checked (with "0.00.sps.version") Post.
2nd) Get the item "Host Programs" as isolated menu item to to definitely kill the windows start menu (actually is integrated in "My Computer" item and is not possible to show it in the first level))
3er) New 'Script After Install' command "RunFile" on install and update Post. (Well, I know that this very, very special feature, a "publisher" wish)

I hope that this thread will be useful for all, applying Kano's marketing approach to new features: What does the client consider important and how is it implemented.

Ho ho ho... So I'd be a sort of Santa Claus now smilesmile
Let's see what I have in my sack...

1) With the next version you'll have something similar even if not exactly what you are asking for. You'll be able to always force an update this means that you'll be able to force an update of a normal item and a 0.00 item too.
Indeed you are already notified of any new update with the little "upd" and "new" badges placed over the program icons but I got your point and probably we will arrive there before or after.
2) It's one of the topic of the bunch I'm analyzing for the next version. It's not a sure implementation but likely.
3) Well it's not among the top priorities but who knows... in Christmas time we are all on our best behavior smile

Since we are speaking about the next I have some anticipations of already ready features.


1) You'll have a logging feature (turned off by default) that can log your activity in SyMenu;
2) You can force an SPS updated (already covered before)
3) In the configuration form the cursors keys with the SHIFT modifier are able to move the items up, down, up level, and inside the very next folder

4) The item cloning available in the configuration form with drag & drop, can now be done with the special context menu entry too

5) The Visit web site link in configuration form is now a button
6) Fix - Deleting an item that shares its program icon with another item, doesn't remove the icon file anymore

7) Fix - The item description textbox in configuration form now selects all its text on enter as the other textboxes
