(Workaround Done) Lazarus clipped main menu
« on: December 28, 2007, 06:03:56 pm »
Hello comrades !

I found that Lazarus works well on windows 95. Considering that I will have to support Win9x platform for several more years, this is simply great !

However, I have this one thing that bugs me at times ...

The menu text seems to be clipped. This also happens in my compiled exe. I apply a workaround by adding an extra space char after each menu item and then it'll display correctly. The odd thing is that it occurs only on win95 ...

Could anyone from lazarus points me to the right direction on how to fix the IDE menu too ... Where does the menu resources located ?

Now, if only I can figure out why it does that in the first place ...
