Just an idea just crossed my mind.

It would be nice to have somewhere (eg. top menu/left global menu) a button to add/report a new issue (when I am outside of a project context), so I would select the project in the new issue form.

It this possible? Because it would save me a click every time when I want to just add issue.

This would be possible, but I think this should be something that's done in a plugin.

Plugins have access to add items to the 'More' menu. I couldn't find it in the ChiliProject wiki, but the plugin tutorial on the redmine site has a simple example -

The problem with the "More" Menu is: Its not intuitive and handy for items which are used quite often.

All of our users are dissatisfied with this new menu - so we had to adapt the menubar by inserting new items via JavaScript.

It would be better, if plugins have a chance to extend existing menus and the sidebar - the current limitation is to hard and looses the focus on usability.

Sorry for this critique - but anyone I asked and some users here (see the theme discussions inside tickets and the forum) think the same way.

Maybe there's a way to do both: Offering hooks for the "More" menu and optionally hooks for sidebar/menubar?
