The main tools menu has individual entries for all the buttons already on the left toolbar, these are entirely redundant, since I don't think you can draw a voxel without a mouse anyway.

Secondly, the tools that ARE used from the menus frequently, like auto-normals, or fill or voxel texture, are now needlessly nested because the menu is too long.

Can we either split the two menus, like "Drawing Tools" and "Voxel Tools" ?

OR...

Just remove the useless drawing tools, and use the tooltips to show the hotkeys when hovering on the buttons on the left?

... and thereby remove all the annoying submenus.

This way you can move Animation and 3D Modelizer to the Section menu where it really belongs...

Sorry, but I disagree with your suggestion. I do understand that some tools are used more often than others, but they are all tools and that part of the menu isn't cluttered yet.

That's kinda my point, it's not cluttered which is why having sub menus is annoying, more so because most of the menu is filled with redundant items.
