  1. Bring up the Plugin Creator with the Tools->Plugin Creator menu.
  2. Add in all of the resources you've created.
  3. Bring up the Toolbar tab in the user preferences (Edit->Preferences). Select some items on the right and do Export to Menu Plugin. Enter some menu name.
  4. Go to the Excludes and select a number of system resources to exclude. e.g., Color Tables, Station Models, etc.
  5. View the Properties tab, scroll down and change IDV Title to something else.
  6. Click on Write Plugin.
  7. Enter myplugin.jar in the file browser.
