This patch adds the File, Edit and Search menu to the list of user definable menus (so far these were the Shell, Macro and Background menus). Moreover, you can add separators under menu entries and hide menu entries while having shortcuts for them. This is for achieving
the compact menus like Search->Find, where Ctrl+F finds forward and Shift+Ctrl+F finds in backward direction.
Notice, there are some changes in the preferences file format. The old format is read, but make a backup copy of your nedit.rc, because the new format won't be read by an unpatched NEdit.
Notice also, there are necessarily some minor changes to the File, Edit and Search menu now, and the patch isn't complete in that I haven't written the unload part of the Load Tags/Tips Files macros, yet.
BUT the point is that these menus are definable now, anyway, and this makes me feel like so :->>
