The Quicklists is an amazing feature of unity.

But sometimes some options which I might want are not available in the quicklist.

For the simplest example:

In the Nautilus quicklist,suppose I need a directory that I had added in the home folder.

Now how do i bring it as an entry in the quicklists?

How could I delete some options from it?

How could I add separators?

You can edit / add new quicklists usign Ubuntu Tweak, is very esay to use and every thing is using GUI.

To install Ubuntu Tweak:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

Then you have to open ubuntu tweak and go to the option Admins > Quicklists Editor

MyUnity provides this and is in the standard repos. Install it from the Software Center, or use the command:

sudo apt-get install myunity

The options are on the launcher tab, quicklist.
