Just thinking


What you say is basically true. But for me there is something missing in
the Xatshow tutorial regarding menus.

I have been working with computers since the mid 1960s and have developed
many comprehensive computer programs over 3 decades of directing a large

However, for some reason, I could not figure out how to make a menu for

Happily, John Greenwood (bless him!) sent me step by step directions which
worked beautifully.

I then went back to the tutorial and still couldn't see how I would have
done it without John's help.

Chris is great. I admire his willingness to help and the speed with which
he responds.
