I use a music notation program called Finale with Wine on Ubuntu. It is a great program, but its menus can be a bear to navigate and look for everything, especially if I know just the name of what I need. Is there a way that I could create artificial HUD options for this program? There is a bunch of menus on the top of the screen, and I wasn't sure if there was a way to make them into HUD-searchable menus.

If this is not doable in Wine, can it be done for any other Linux application that does not have Global menu support yet? (The few programs out there that are this way, that is :P)

The only times I've seen no global menu are in java applications, and I think thats being worked on. –  jrg Nov 3 '12 at 1:31
