Creating a CNC Editor custom menu with Predator is for creating a shortcut to launch a desired program within Editor. Instead of going to your desktop or Start menu to start a common application, we can make a “bookmark” type link, which will reside in the options menu of Editor. To add a new custom menu:
- From the File menu select New Custom Menu…
- The New Custom Menu Wizard will appear:
|Menu Name||Type a name for the new custom menu item.|
|Command Line||Enter a command line to execute or click the … button to browse the Windows File System for a command line|
-Examples of the command line parameter would be “PDnc.exe” for Predator DNC-
- When finished, click Finish to save the new custom menu. It will appear under the Options menu.
At any time, click Cancel to discard the new custom menu.
A limit of four custom menu items exists. The Menu Name must be unique.
