Hi, I'm using the common navigator in my RCP application, and I have two
questions:
1. How can I make the New submenu appear under the file menu in the main
menu bar?

2. How can I add my own actions to the New submenu?

My answer applies to an RCP, but I have not used the common nav., which may perhaps change things.

1) in your app's ActionBarAdvisor, method fillCoolBar(), include this code:
final IWorkbenchWindow window =
getActionBarConfigurer().getWindowConfigurer().getWindow();
register(ActionFactory.NEW_WIZARD_DROP_DOWN.create(window));
coolBar.add(getAction(ActionFactory.NEW_WIZARD_DROP_DOWN.get Id()));

and when you are creating your file-menu, in method fillMenuBar(), supply this code:
final String newId = ActionFactory.NEW.getId();
final MenuManager newMenu = new MenuManager("New...", newId);
newMenu.add(new Separator(newId));
final IContributionItem newWizards =
ContributionItemFactory.NEW_WIZARD_SHORTLIST.create(window);
newMenu.add(newWizards);
newMenu.add(new Separator(IWorkbenchActionConstants.MB_ADDITIONS));
menu.add(newMenu);

2) in the plugin.xml (of whichever component plug-in makes sense), extend
"org.eclipse.ui.newWizards", add a "wizard" child, and in its markup supply a class that extends
Wizard and implements INewWizard. I use for "category" the value "org.eclipse.ui.Basic/" (trailing
slash required, for some reason).

HTH,
Paul
