Add new Link icons to Tools Toolbar

Currently we can link object data, make single user, make local and make proxy.

Would be good to have a Link to Scene and other link icons once the icons for those link options are created.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will have a look if it is posible Smile

But all Make Links items will just have one icon since it is in fact just one tool. I still think about to remove all the single subitems from the menu. There will definitely just be one Make Links button in the toolbar in case it works.

Ah, i noticed that Make Links already has an icon. And is even already in the toolbar. What is not in the toolbar is the Objects to Scene menu.

What is confusing here is the name. In the tool shelf it's called Link Data. in the menu it is called Make Links. The operator is called Link Data too.

Hm, this means that the one in the object menu is a double menu entry. Which complicates things even more.

Okay, first step. Objects to scene menu goes into tool shelf. And if possible into the toolbar too. That's this task then.

The rest is another issue.

Not a happy bunny here. Objects to scene cannot go into the toolbar. It requires to be performed in the 3D view editor. And by the nature of it it becomes a dropdown box in the tool shelf.

Decision time. I think we can live with the dropdown box in the tool shelf. And the whole Make Links menu in the object menu can be removed then.

Ah, i was wrong. The dropdown box can go into toolbar editor. It's now in the relations toolbar. The item is renamed to Link to SCN. Makes a shorter dropdown box, and fits now to its tooltip.

Fixed in master

Now let's remove the make links menu. That's another task.
