- I bought the upgrade to CS4 and did some initial testing. I'll work on
it some more. First impression is positive. It worked fine and
inserted all the right files. I liked that the menu or tree was
populated with some items to make it easy to modify by the example.
It would be nice to see more options to configure YUI Menu like have
it create a yuimenubar or yuimenu. I won't use the default yuimenul
much so I'll likely not use the wdiget that often. But maybe I'm
missing something as I'm not that familiar with Adobe's extensions.
