Me smellz a double entry here.

Needs investigation if we can even remove the clip menu completely as long as there is no clip loaded. On the other hand, VSE is a deprecated feature in Bforartists. So this whole issue has lowest priority anyways.

VSE is deprecated, not the clip editor. We need this one for tracking.

Back to the issue. This is a tough one. It IS a double entry. And it does the same. But it has two different hotkey entries.

What makes it a bit complicated is that the open clip button turns into a dropdown box when a clip is loaded. So no more load button here. And then we need the menu item open clip to load another clip.

Means we have when nothing is loaded the load and save buttons available, and when something is loaded not anymore. When we remove the menu items when nothing is loaded then we have the same functionality at two different places dependand of the mode. Not good. Same functionality should always be at the same place.

Needs more thinking ...

Same issue also exists in UV Image Editor

After further thinking i decided not to remove those entries. They may be double. But the alternative is worse since it breaks consistency the one or another way. I might rethink this issues in the future. But for now it stays as it is.

Closed.
