Quick inventory

Allows you quick access to the first 6 (horizontal) inventory slots of the inventory window without needing to open it. It's possible to mix using this to feed yourself, but it spams your chatlogs.

Quick spellbar

You can add spells that you can cast from the magic window, and use Alt+[No. downwards] or click on it to cast the spell.

Stats

The Stats sidebar can be customised to show bars (how much experience to the next level) and Levels you possess in each skill

Compass and clock

The time can be toggled on/off, as well as toggling on/off the seconds unit.

User menus

User Menus.png

This User Menu is stored in a file text.menu in your Eternal Lands data directory (Eternal Lands/main/text.menu) and can be edited with a text editor (do not try this with notepad, it makes a mess, use a real plain text editor like metapad and make sure you do not save with a different or extra extension like .txt). The source code of this file is given below. Items that need additional input, such as 
Accept...||#accept <Player Name> 
will produce a pop-up window in which the requested data can be entered.
