For somme reason, the em dashes I typed appeared as a series of "As" and "dashes." (Hope it isn't confusing.)

Very nice, very useful! The only thing that's "missing" is the ability to insert one or more menu dividing lines (say, between applications and documents). But I found a way:

1. Create an empty folder on your desktop.
2. Name the folder "--------" (I used 22 em dashes).
3. Add it to Menu Browser via the "Folders in Menu" prefs.
4. Position it by dragging it to the desired location relative to the other menu items.
5. The folder will now appear in Menu Browser as an empty folder named "--------."
6. Now delete the folder from your desktop. (Yup...delete it!)
7. The empty folder named "--------" will no longer appear in Menu Browser, but its name ( "--------") will remain and serve as a menu dividing line.
8. Repeat for each menu dividing line you want to insert.

sorry, another "wish" - have the name of the folder get copied (and not just path) when configure browsing

and yes, much better than XMenu as requires no links. another "wish": would be nice to have a (small) choice of icons

running 10.6 and MB works fine. thanks. but it seems to show (sometimes) invisible files, such as custom icon of the folder. can it be fixed? thanks again

It doesn't seem to do more than the free XMenu. Am I mistaken?

Hello,

yes, you are right, it does a similar thing - thanks fore pointing me to them, I didn't know before about this "competition" :).

Menu Browser has a couple of additional features:
* more easily customizable list of folders that are shown in the menu (no need for symlinks in a special folder)
* "folder actions", which let you open a folder in finder/terminal/iterm/custom apple script
* hot key, which opens the menu whatever you are doing, allowing for a completely mouse-free navigation

And some more features are coming in the next version.
