    For specifically file dialogs, you don't actually need to have an iced component for that. You can have a button with an onclick of something like nfd. Iced at the moment does not support multiple windows though. I'm unsure of menubar stuff.

    After getting my base window up, I was smooth sailing! Very nice to use, will definitely be using again for my next project that requires a gui. I ended up using nfd for file selection which worked seamlessly with egui.
