A power little app but needs a few updates.

This app combined with the New File Menu are awesome. Why not combine the two?

The only two immediate features I would love to see are the ability to change the submenu from "Context Menu" to a custom title like in New File Menu and improving the Copy Paths feature.

It would be great if the Copy Paths feature put carriage returns (new lines) as an option when you copy/paste multiple item paths. That way you could paste multiple paths into an email / text document that are easy to read and share.

It's for coders & it's great!

Finally I've found a perfect tool to Open folder with Visual Studio Code or Create File Here - Basically anything on a contect menu.
