Summary0025454: Suggestion: UI: Highlight extra context menus in menubar
DescriptionContext menubar items, such as the Room Editor/Image Editor/Source Control, should have a Ribbon-like different background or text colour to highlight them to new users, as currently many people miss that we have added the menu and so wonder where half the tools/functionality has gone.

Suggested: Either a block of colour or a different colour for the text to signify when we have appended new menubar items to the default list.

I'd say ideally these should have themes so the same colours are used consistently - e.g. rooms = red, images = yellow, etc.

Agree, each plugin should specify its own color. Flat background color, not foreground. Or a texture.

Same should be for tools showing on toolbar below (like tileset editor buttons in room editor).
