OK, had to play with things a bit, but this works:

 

First, define a new Process (Tailoring > Document Engine > Processes)

Process Name: openConfigChange (or whatever you want to call it)

Enter the Initial Expression: $setCategory="CATEGORY_NAME"

On the RAD panel, in the first application enter: cmc.open.from.menu

Click Add.

 

Second, update the cm.open Process (which is called by cmc.open.from.menu):

In the "Expressions evaluated before RAD call" for the cm.open RAD application, enter:

if ($setCategory="CATEGORY_NAME" then category in $L.file="CATEGORY_NAME"; $setCategory=NULL

Save.

 

Third, add the Menu item to the Menu record which will call the new Process:

Application:               se.call.process

Parameter Name:   name

Parameter Value:   openConfigChange (or whatever you called it)

Enter a description, option # and condition.

Re: help in menus

Thanks.
And what if I need to select categories from predefined Global List?
As I see, I have to add wizzard.run or cm3.category.select in the beginning (RAD) of cm.open process. What do you think?
