Hi Joe,

You can use line lineOffset(<menuItem name>, tMenu) of tMenu
where tMenu is your menu put into a variable:

put "(" before line lineOffset("Paste", tMenu) of tMenu
Very fast an reliable.

To be not kindly corrected by Ken :-)
I would add that, sometimes you will use:
put lineOffset(tab & <menuItem name>, tMenu) of tMenu into tSkip
put "(" before line lineOffset("tab & <menuItem name>, tMenu,tSkip)  
of tMenu
That will dim the second menu item of the same name in a submenu :-)
