I like your optic... I always have the problem that I have no unique icon set because always icons are missing

Yes context menu are making a system much more useable even though much work for the distribution creator  :)

I created those two PNG icons on the fly but in my opinion they use too large a size 24x24, now try to create them smaller 20x20, creating quality icons so small is very complicated, the smaller the image the more it deteriorates and loses quality, So you have to redesign pixel by pixel by hand.

Here 20x20 already are a little better (They are upside down, then I will fix them  ;D)

I am currently trying to get the scalos distribution on the same level as magellan and it is possible

For example I just realized that you can define common context menu for a certain type of files.

In my example I defined all archive types from XAD in "filetypes". If you change to "action" and click on "archive" you can define the context menu that is shown if you do not define a specific context menu for a filetype. Very handy  :)

Are you talking about AROS 68k or AROS x86 ?

I am using it currently on 68k. But it should be the same on X86

No XAD on x86 does not work well, you cannot turn an LHA,ZIP etc.. into a folder, also some archive formats are not supported. I have already reported this problem to deadwood.

ah ok

XAD I do not know. I only explained how you define common menu for a type of files, in this case archives. There are a number of types predefined.
