Hi Roger,

In the DcadWin.ini file, look at the


Use a number in place of the XX to add that number of pixels to increase the width of this. In my case, I have it 60 pixels wider.

If your menu is not wide enough, then you will need a larger menu font, and/or adding width to the menu buttons.

Thanks Neil.
I also found that setting is available under Prog Preferences, Toolbar tab, bottom left. There you can set it and apply to see the results immediately.
