Although the editor is mainly developped and tested on 12.04, it should work on earlier versions of Unity as well.
Editing options include:
-- adding commands
-- adding dividers
-- adding LibreOffice applications (from a list, to any quicklist)
-- adding shortcuts to applications (creating grouped quicklists from an application list that is presented)
-- adding directories
-- adding virtual boxes (from a list that is presented)
-- adding url's
-- renaming existing entries
-- changing the command of an existing entry
-- moving entries up or down in the quicklist
-- importing entries from textfiles or other quicklists* (experimental)
-- removing entries
-- resetting the quicklist to as it was before QLE editor was installed
-- creating new quicklists
-- removing standalone quicklists
Additionally, the editor recognizes and corrects some properties of quicklists that might cause problems (like no ";" at the end of the entry line). The editor recognizes and edits both "old" (<12.04) and "new" style desktop files.
"standalone" desktop files (made by the user, not representing an application) are recognized and listed, and can be edited like any quicklist.
When an icon (quicklist) is edited for the first time, a re- login might be necessary to see the effect. Afterwards the changes will effect immediately.
