Questions about Quickicon groups

Post by Mr. Wimpy » Tue Sep 10, 2019 9:51 am

Hey, hey,

I noticed this option while testing J4a11. It is also in J3 and maybe earlier, but I hadn't noticed it before.

I understand that by entering the group name in a quickicon plugin and a quickicon module the quickicon is added to a quickicon module with the same group name.

I was wondering...

Why was decided to use group in favour of a quickicon module name?

Why was decided to use a text input field in favour of a select list? ...of quickicon modules?

Can quickicons be added to multiple groups/modules?
I have tried separating group names with , ; | [space] Didn't seem to do anything.

Thank you,
