Can I create a quicklist sub-menu for my launchers? Like if I put Ubuntu and on hover it opened a sub-menu with all my Ubuntu links?

Are you talking about creating a custom launcher called 'Ubuntu' that would have a list of urls (quicklist)? more info – Cas May 15 '11 at 1:06
No I've already created that. Say for instance OMG! Ubuntu was replaced with Ubuntu. When I hover over it like my picture it would open up another menu with more choices. – wojox May 15 '11 at 1:12
Not possible @wojox. You have 1 dimension to work with. – Rinzwind May 15 '11 at 1:21

No sorry the quicklists are basic 1-dimensional text lists.

meh, well thanks. I know there now called quicklists. Appreciate it. – wojox May 15 '11 at 1:40

No, that's not possible, but it should soon become rather easy to make a lense for that kind of functionality. We can expect lots of lenses to become available during the lifetime of 11.10.
