You could do it simply switching 0 to 1 in registry (regedit.exe) in ShowContextMenuTabPage.

Thank alot, I change it .
but
I add "trim to roof" in Work Env. I can not see " trim to roof" comand in the palette. and why it is hidden in regedit. It is not a big secret, it is only a palette.

Yes, You are right - I've check it in my AC10 POL and INT version (987).
After switching in registry, Context menu is shown in WE but with wrong commands.
But it is rather a Bug than a Wish

Yep and guess what, I hate the new context menu for selected parts to move, rotate and mirror.
Now it's a 3 click command. Not practical at all.

Graphisoft, please fix this ASAP

Not practical, happily I use only shortcuts for this for years...

agree with Rafal SLEK
better use shortcuts
context menu isn't work speedup, context menu - best way for newbie, when it can select command and see (and remember) it's shortcut
Ctrl-D,Ctrl-U etc...

I'm a shortcut user too, but I do think putting things into sub-menus in the context menu was a mistake. I notice that a lot of new & casual users rely on that menu for the most frequently used commands. Overall Graphisoft went way overboard with sub-menus when designing the default command layout for ArchiCAD 10. I think it's much faster, and less prone to mousing errors, to have long menus rather than sub-menus. A lot of us spent (far too much) time rearranging the menus to be more agreeable. Another benefit of single long menus is to quickly remind the user of hard to remember KB shortcuts. For the life of me I can never remember Split

Yes, you read that correctly, we are in the US but use the INT version, because the libraries are better.

Split, adjust and intersect for some reason didn't have shortcuts for a long time. Now that we have single key shortcuts I assign them to backslash, equal, and the letter i respectively.
