Good stuff; I like most of these changes.  

A few  issues:

Show/Hide Layers Manager and Show/Hide Microwave Toolbar should be changed to 
checkable items (with just the show version of the text).  They should also 
probably move down the menu so they’re in the same order as the toolbar buttons.

I think I’d use “Zone Display” instead of “Zones” for the zone display options 

User Defined Grid… should be moved from the Dimensions menu to just under Show 
Grid on the View menu and renamed Grid Settings....

Instead of adding a new top-level Inspect menu, how about reorganising the 
Tools menu:

Read Netlist…
Update PCB from Schematic…
Design Rules Checker
Set Layer Pair…

Alternatively, if others really like the Inspect menu, we should move Design 
Rules Checker to it as well.

I don’t think I’d move the global editing stuff from the Edit menu to the Tools 

Pads Mask Clearance… and Differential Pairs... should probably move to the 
Design Rules menu?  (Or perhaps Differential Pairs… should go to the Route 
menu?  Either way it should be renamed Differential Pair Settings….)

Oh, and one of the biggest issues with Legacy vs Modern is that folks think 
it’s just a view change (not a whole different toolset).  We should move them 
to the Preferences menu to help clear that up.  They’d go well near Display
