ExpFavMenu is the codename for the Expanded Favorites Menu mod. This mod solves several functional and display issues with the vanilla ExpFavMenu.

Many configuration options are available, including:
* Categories!: Create your own custom categories or use included category lists for en-US vanilla version of game.
* Colored hotkeys to easily find them in the list
* Sort by A-Z, Hotkeys to Top, or Hotkeys to Bottom
* Left/center aligned text
* Left aligned equip icons
* Selected item at top of list (default), centered of list mostly, and centered of list always (vanilla default)
* Page up/down on keyboard and gamepad: Customizable and defaults to keys: Page Up/Down keys on keyboard and L1/R1 on gamepad
* Home/End on keyboard and gamepad: Customizable and defaults to keys: Home/End keys on keyboard and L3/R3 on gamepad
* Extended number of items visible on the screen (tested up to 25, but more should be possible if you've got the real estate)
* Menu width
* And best of all, it is configurable with a config file and a GUI.
