The "Acquire" portion of the Screenshot plug-in's menu registration specifies the menu subgroup to which the command is added. These menu subgroups (called "placeholders" in GIMP terminology) are typically separated by the menu separator lines in the menu/submenu. Within a placeholder's group, menu commands are dynamically sorted in alphabetical order employing the current locale translation, but the placeholder groups' menu positions are fixed relative to each other. To my understanding, extensive documentation does not yet exist on GIMP's placeholders, nor is their mechanism accessible through the Procedural DataBase (i.e., you can't create new placeholder groups from a plug-in). You can find out the existing placeholder groups by grepping the XML source in the menus directory (http://svn.gnome.org/viewvc/gimp/branches/gimp-2-6/menus/). I imagine the GIMP developers would welcome contributions of further documentation and PDB bindings for menu placeholders. _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list Gimp-developer@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
