Right-click menu

I'm trying to add the wire angles 22.5 and 67.5 to the right-click menu. I'm copying the existing wires under the **Click... section(wire and wire45) and adding 22.5 and 67.5 verbatim to the menu, deleted files .mns, .mnc, and .mnr, recompiled the menu files, and its still not working. Getting Error message (Unknown command "WD_REACT_DO_INWIRE22".) Has anyone had any success trying to add items to the right-click menu?

    You can add your custom routines
or existing Electrical routines to the right-click menu, but you cannot modify
calls "WD_REACT_DO_INWIRE45" and have it work.  That is a
specific routine being called and when you modify it, you new call can
no longer find a matching function to run.  You can, however, set it
up to call the general insert 22 wire command.  It just will not have the
same functionality where it selects the location you right-click as the start
point for the wire, you will have to make that selection.  For the specific
command calls, you can check out the specific toolbar buttons.  Here is the
entry I made to insert the angled wire from the right-click menu:

[Insert Wire&22]^C^C^Pwd_in22wire

 

    This worked fine for me.  I
hope this helps!

I will be more than happy to add this to the
wishlist.  Please keep in mind though that it is working properly. 
The call you were making did not exist and that is why it would not
work.

Thanks, and have a good day.
