Here is the idea:
[ The exact style of the menu is controlled by the toolkit, not the active theme. ]
Specific entries are available only in the right context, such as to
denote-dired-mode when in Dired buffers or to show
backlinks when in a
text-mode buffer (or its derivatives, like
The menu enhances the accessibility of Denote by making its commands easier to discover.
Note that this is a development snapshot. I may still tweak things
and also cover the
context-menu-mode, though the intent is clear.

Denote is a simple note-taking tool for Emacs. It is based on the idea that notes should follow a predictable and descriptive file-naming scheme. The file name must offer a clear indication of what the note is about, without reference to any other metadata. Denote basically streamlines the creation of such files while providing facilities to link between them.
Denote’s file-naming scheme is not limited to “notes”. It can be used for all types of file, including those that are not editable in Emacs, such as videos. Naming files in a constistent way makes their filtering and retrieval considerably easier. Denote provides relevant facilities to rename files, regardless of file type.
