Hi.
It is nothing specific to LWCAD, regarding icons and menus.
You can customize LWCAD tools into menu bar the same way as any other plugins or C4D tools.

You can create your own palette or menu bar of LWCAD tools and save it as a startup layout.
Cinema is very flexible and powerful with this.

There are a bunch or tutorials about this, here is one of them:

Thank you for your response, Viktor.

I am aware of how to create palettes within Cinema 4D.
However, what I was looking for was information on how to incorporate several related icons into one icon on a single menu palette.
And by selecting that one icon, a fly-out menu appears revealing all of the related icons within that one icon.

That was what I meant in my initial explanation by using the words collapse & expand.
The correct / more accurate terminology is 'fly-out menus'.

It would certainly be ideal if the end-user could simply 'drag-and-drop' related icons (within a palette) over each other to create a related 'nesting' group (with one icon representing that group of icons).

Is there specific Cinema 4D tutorials on that topic? If so, that would be very helpful.

When you customizing the palette, just click to it with RMB and there are the fold and un-fold commands.
When you fold the palette, you can move it as an icon to the other palette or tab.

This system was a bit strange to me at first, but it is the most flexible GUI amongst the all major 3D programs.

Thank you, Viktor.

The more that I use Cinema 4D and associated extensions, the more I learn.
