I would like to have another dropdown field like More or Print on top of an odoo view.

I would need this field to show additional functions in it. The new field would prevent the  More menu to have to many entries and help to categorize the functions of a model.

Hello Sven,

thanks for your answer, can you give me some further information, where i have to make the extensions?

I suppose, that i have to extend functions from the openerp/addons/base folder.

you could call it a core function, as it's part of the view manager header and sidebar, but that doesn't mean it cannot be extended ;). E.g. we extended the tree/kanban view header with two custom filter dropdowns in our own odoo instance. 

But you'll need some odoo/python/js knowlege.

with kind regards,

i have the same problem. Does anyone know how to add another button? Or are these buttons core functions and you can not add another button on your own?
