Description Jiri Vagner 2007-10-26 13:17:36 UTC
Using "Add From Palette" popup menu in Inspector tree is strange and confusing sometimes. Menu content should be
filtered somehow, it should contains only valid or suitable components.

Try the following scenario ...
 - Create JFrame form
 - Go to Inspector window and select [JFrame] node and invoke popup menu
 - Browse into "Add From Palette" -> "Swing Menus" submenu
Now user assumes, that he is able to add jpopup menu, becaues he can see it and menu item is clickable.
 - Click menu item "Popup Menu" -> "Other components" node is still empty. :(
