I would like to be able to change individual icons in the leaf menu. The edit button only allows me to change the name.

Sorry if this functionality already exists.... The Ringmaster

I don't see the necessity, frankly.
Why should the links under ~/config/be, i.e. the apps etc. in the Deskbar menus, have another icon in the Deskbar than anywhere else? From your example, I see that you got the idea because previously it was necessary to start BeZilla via script, but you wanted the real Zilla-icon instead.

You could have assigned the BeZilla icon to the script file...

I'd say this ticket is invalid.

Oh. You may have meant to have this feature as part of the "Configure Deskbar Menu" panel. My bad.
OTOH, I'm all for doing away with the whole panel and only put the "Recent Docs/Folders/Apps" into a proper Deskbar Preferences.

Besides that, you can actually give symlinks icons for themselves AFAICT.

If possible, it's at least not easy to assign an icon to a symlink. Exporting from Icon-O-Matic will hand down the new BEOS:ICON to the linked original file. Maybe I-O-M's export panel can handle these things in the future with an alert if you'd like to assign the icon to the link or original file. Not pressing IMO.

You're right it's not so easy. I thought you could invoke FileTypes on links, but you can't, it will also point to the original file. Which, most of the time, is probably what you want... You should be able to copyattr the icon attribute, but I agree it's not user-friendly at all.
