v1.0.3 Released

Changes in this plugin:
  • Ensure submenus for plugins can have their states updated by emitting the aboutToShow signal for every plugin that has an associated .menu set for it

The impact for users is that plugins which relied on updating their menu items every time they were opened should now get the same behaviour when placed as a Favourites Menu item. So for instance Quick Preferences will now correctly display the current state of its items.

Other plugin developers can refer to the additional notes I placed on the first post about this. But for the most part you shouldn't need to do anything at all...

Can I use this plugin to replace the main Calibre menu? I would need to:
- Run multiple instances of the plugin
- Rename each one
- Use different icons for each one
- Have different menu items under each one
- Probably some more stuff

Or is there an easier way to rebuild the main menu?

Just answering this for any future users that wander in assuming the OP has given up hope of an answer by now...

Can't be done without a lot of code hacking. You can only have one instance of a plugin. You would need to make multiple copies of the plugin, give each different names, then do a whole bunch of edits on the code within each to make their internal names unique, point them at unique configuration areas, different images, different top level menu names etc. And then do it all over again whenever I push a new version of the plugin...

As for other options for rebuilding the main menu, all you can really do without hacking the calibre source code is juggle which buttons you want to appear in Preferences -> Toolbar, and change their images. You can't change their text names or the options that appear underneath without serious source code changing however.

Life has taught me it is not healthy to give up hope so easily. Thanks for the answer.
