Add frequently used item to "Insert More Content" menu

In Confluence, there is an "Insert" dropdown menu with the mouseover text "Insert More Content". This menu directly contains about 15 macro items, only one of which (the "Table of Contents" macro) I use frequently. The other macro I use frequently is "Insert Code Block". But I have to go to "Other Macros" inside the "Insert" menu, click on the "Formatting" section, then click on "Code Block", then click on "Insert" every time.

Is there a way to put the "Insert Code Block" macro directly in the "Insert" dropdown menu, so I can save many clicks per use?

Karl, Why not use the keyboard shortcut to enter a macro? In this case the left curly bracket, then start typing 'code block' the whole name should then appear. Select it and press return. This will enter the macro. You can then open the macro and edit it as necessary. This will save you a few clicks. I'd love to be able to add my macros as favourites though. Cheers.

We have a feature request for this at https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-28832
