V6 - Change Task, Milestone, Project dropdown

It would be nice if in V6 you didn't have to click on Misc and then Change Type to toggle 'Task', 'Milestone' or 'Project' types. Less clicks :)

Eventually these menus will be customizable, but for now our product team is already complaining that the Common tab is getting too crowded =). Unfortunately I think you may have to wait until the customization option is available.

what are the ways of adding milestones in v6 ---I see there are various ways do you have a blurb or explaination for the terms like I see a milestone adding via the navigational menu and when in a plan but when are the correct terms...like adding via ribbion, nav menu or buttons - I am trying to do a proposal.

Really there are two options in the work plan, you can "Add" a milestone, which places the milestone instead of a project your are selecting. Alternatively you can "Insert" a milestone, which creates it above the item you are selecting assuming that the new milestone would not be created instead of a task or another milestone (this is not allowed at the moment and will give you an error). You can also convert a task to a milestone using the change type function in the menu.

Josh, is there a way to programatically invoke the "Change Type" built-in action from a custom action or a workflow/validation rule?
