Yep. $HFS/houdini/UsdStagePrimMenu.xml defines that menu and it can be modified like any other Houdini XML-based menu by adding a similarly named file somewhere in the HOUDINI_PATH.

Copy2Pts x PointXform [Bug] [SOLVED] Oct. 27, 2020, 2:25 p.m.

The bug is that there is any scale being set at all. This is happening because we are doing some internal orientation calculations at half-float precision in the Instancer LOP. This problem will be fixed in tomorrow's build.

I don't know how to judge if karma is responding “correctly” to these scale values…

Copy2Pts x PointXform [Bug] [SOLVED] Oct. 26, 2020, 10:48 p.m.

If you look at the “Local to World Xform” of the light coming out of the Instancer LOP using the spreadsheet view, you can see that it's generating small non-unit scale values (the scale coming out of point xform is exactly 1.0). Even if I turn off “Set Scale” in the Instancer LOP. I'm hoping that's where the discrepancy is coming from, but I'll need to do a bit more digging to figure out why it's ending up with scales in the xform… I'll let you know when/if I make any progress.
