Though not impossible, I wouldn't want three or four configs to make one context menu. It's just inefficient in my opinion. If you are referring to the JSMorley guide that is.
I agree, but I was not referring to that, in this context. I was referring to what you said here
, which was basically saying that built-in
(as in already provided
by Rainmeter's native options) nested custom menus were possible. They are not (which is why we have to build them ourselves), as we could see. That was the only time when I "corrected" you here, since you mentioned it.

Simplicity should not be overlooked. Very nice work
Thanks. Maybe I'll post it there too, when I'm in the mood for it. Unlike on "regular threads", I have to think of every little detail and be 100% professional when I post there, so it's a bit of a "stress" for my laid-back style, LOL.
Anyway, in case the OP is interested, here's the "Font Chooser" at work in his own skin (well, it could be better, especially regarding positioning since those fonts are sometimes placed higher and sometimes lower, but it's all about doing it along similar lines):
Scrolling on "Font: ..." changes the font, iterating though all installed fonts in the OS. Scrolling on the temperature resizes the skin as usual. Middle clicking on the temperature toggles the hiddens state of the "Font: ..." meter / text, for conveniency. Didn't "shift" the temperature upwards when hiding the font text, it seemed better to do it that way.
P.S. Since the used font is based on the list of installed fonts in the system, its "index" would have to be slightly updated after installing new fonts in Windows. Not a big deal, probably just a matter of a couple of mouse scrolls, depending on the amount of new fonts.
P.S.S. Obviously, browsing through fonts can be done in other ways too, not just by mouse scrolling - for example by placing some arrow "buttons" and clicking on them. I chose scrolling to navigate through fonts because it would take lots of clicks to get from font 1 to, say, font 100, and since there are a couple of hundred fonts on a regular Windows, you get the idea...
