Bonjour Eric,

just as an example, look in revolution menu,
The Text Menu.
if you don't select any text, everything is disabled, from all
the items of the menu to all the sub-items ( like the Fonts )...
This is normal behavior on Windows, well at least on my computer :-)

or do I miss something more subtle ?

HTH, thierry

ÉC> On Windows, if the first submenu item is disabled, you cant catch the

ÉC> Is that correct behavior according to some guide lines I dont know on 
ÉC> Windows or is it a kind (...) of bug ?
