I had a go at writing the Menu Overview subsection (3.3 - which is currently empty except for a fix me).

I would like to get some comments before I make a patch. Is this the right sort of thing for this section?

I have put up html and pdf versions of the section here:

Additional comments about closing:  no activity since years, and thinking about it it might be better to not include a menu overview in the manual.

From a quick glance this looks quite nice to me but I came to the conclusion that this overview would be better suited in the appendix. Nevertheless, moving it shouldn't be an issue. Maybe not use some background color for the boxes but simly use the paper background? I'd really like to see a patch for this ...

OK here is the patch. Well, two patches, one is all the .tex files (both the manually created and auto created ones). The other is
the script used to generate the auto generated tex files. Just run (from a directory under the main rockbox
one) and it should generate them. Probably will only work on unix though.

I split the two because don't know if you would want to check in the tools or just the generated code.

Yes, it is easy to move it anywhere. I thought that at least the main one (and maybe the simplified settings) should be in
section 3 - sometimes when you are in a new place it is nice to have a map :)

At the moment the files are in manual/rockbox_interface/ and the stuff that would need to change to move
stuff is in menu_structure.tex.

The background is easy to change too, it is set in the preamble.tex, just look for:

and change the second list to {1.0,1.0,1.0} to get white.

Updated to work with 15010. For the tools had to add the new theme_menu.c file to the list scanned. Then reran the shell script to get the manual patch with this new theme settings menu (and the other small changes that have been made to the menus recently).
