More than 20 items in the menu?

Is there any way currently to have more than 20 items on the menu in PAM? I've just run up against this limit. I added my 21st app to my drive, and it wouldn't show up in PAM until I got rid of something else (in this case, by renaming the .exe's on a couple of OpenOffice bits I never use).

Thanks.

Scroll

You can scroll up and down. Only 20 will show at a time, but you can scroll up and down the list of apps using:

1. The up and down arrow buttons on the menu with your mouse
2. The up and down arrow keys on your keyboard
3. The mousewheel (my preferred option)

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

...

Why not add a scrollbar, like the Windows Vista Start menu has? I know that, at least for me, if I don't see a scrollbar, I won't even think to try the mousewheel.

Messy, Looks Bad

1. It's messy code-wise. This isn't a list that's easily scrollable. It's a series of buttons tied to 2 (and soon 3) arrays of stuff (icons, paths, etc). I'm working on some code I may implement in a later version if we can fix point 2.

2. It looks awful. It's the standard Windows theming, whatever it happens to be. So, it gets pretty messed up visually. It doesn't work well unless you're using a theme with all right angles (as opposed to the curvy ones in use now).

3. Most people have fewer than 20 apps.

How about allowing the menu

How about allowing the menu to scroll 360 deg? That is when at the top; scroll up to come up from the bottom and when at the bottom, scroll down through the top ..., that would halve the travel - I've got RSI of the index finger ... Wink

Previously suggested...

I had previously suggested a scroll bar or a change in the color of the up and down arrows for exactly the same reason.

Color/Image

The color/image of the scroll buttons is being changed in the next release to better highlight them. And it will be themable.
