Hey Dan,

not entirely sure if this is what you are looking for, but on the Sesi page
there is a video session on toolbuilding that talks about how to position
tools into the right TabMenue (I'm assuming u mean the dropdown menu after
pressing TAB over the network editor/viewport?) by defining it in XML in the
OTL file.

If I recall it right it should be explained in depth in this session:
