DS> I don't understand why we need a second menu item to access the preferences for any tool, or a menu to contain it. It is redundant if there is already a Preferences item in the workbench menu. > I would prefer to push the object centricity of the menus further. Object centricity is usially a good idea. In this case customization is not a part of main workflow. You customize your car and then you drive it. You don't customize your car while you drive it. DS> I agree. The customization which you refer to is not part of the main workflow. Ideally, the user should never have to customize the preferences for a tool. Everything should just work well. Hence, the configure item for each tool does not need a dedicated item. A single item will do. Should we put it in the Workbench menu?
