Command for Alias listing?

Is it possible to get a list of folder aliases, both custom and Opus built-in aliases, in the form of a list? I know they're in the preferences pane and can be displayed in the folder tree... but I never use the folder tree and was hoping to create a button or toolbar that listed them ala the Favorites SMART command. I'm not seeing a command for them.

Thanks.

What do you want it for?

There are so many aliases that a toolbar/menu showing them all wouldn't be that useful for interactive use. (It wouldn't fit on the screen so you'd have to keep scrolling it, which is a pain if the purpose is providing quick access to something.)

I forgot to mention that I don't use the Folder Tree so having the list there isn't much use.

What do I need it for? I haven't yet memorized all 25+ aliases and can't remember all of the ones that I've defined. If I could get them in a menu list ala the Recent List (shown below) or Smart Favorites buttons, that would be great. I'm not seeing a command for this so I'm guessing it's not available.

Here's a menu you can paste to your toolbar with all the built-in aliases.

There's so many of them that it fills the screen so you might want to split them into categories or something.

thanks. Yes, it's quite a long list... I'll have to start organizing it somehow.
