Defined actions can be grouped into customized menus in the Oxygen XML Editor menu bar.

  1. Open the Document Type configuration dialog box, select your custom framework, and go to the Author tab.
  2. Go to the Menu subtab. In the left side you have the list of actions and some special entries:
    • Submenu - Creates a submenu. You can nest an unlimited number of menus.
    • Separator - Creates a separator into a menu. This way you can logically separate the menu entries.
  3. The right side of the panel displays the current actions for that menu tree. To change its name, click this label to select it, then press the Edit button.
  4. Select the Submenu label in the left panel section and the appropriate label in the right panel section, then press the Add as child button. Change the submenu name to Table, using the Edit button.
  5. Select the Insert section action in the left panel section and the Table label in the right panel section, then press the Add as sibling button.
  6. Now select the Insert table action in the left panel section and the Table in the right panel section. Press the Add as child button.

When opening a test document for a custom framework in Author mode, the menu you created is displayed in the editor menu bar, between the Tools and the Document menus. The upper part of the menu contains generic Author mode actions (common to all document types) and the two actions created previously (with Insert table under the Table submenu).
