Floating personalized menus - ribbons!
Wouldn't it be great if we could have personalized menus - sub-toolbars to fasten a workflow?
I have always wanted to be faster on my workflow, and so many tool already allow me to do it, yet I feel there is still space for improvement!

Having the possibility to arrange a floating or non-floating toolbar - menu with my own tools, menus, depending on the type of work I am doing (3d/painting/design etc) would save a lot of time!

Are you aware of the existing customisation options for the Toolbar (Edit > Toolbar) and Menus (Edit > Menus) and how they can be integrated into Workspaces (Window > Workspace > ...)?

Then please elaborate, maybe with a larger screenshot/mock-up. 

Do you know Configurator Reloaded?

It takes programming knowledge, but this can already be done with scripting and CEP.

You can do this even easier with Actions and button mode:

That can work but some of the (many) actions I often use for PhotoEditing have already shortcuts, there are only that many useful keys you can use. I am using Photoshop for speedpaiting as well and a "right click" menu (personalized) would be mch more helpful
