    Scott, I have a rather obscure request, whenever you can check on this. I love the sticky menus because they're always at the top, allowing me easily to Mark Forums Read. Now, when the browser window is too narrow to contain all menus, some of them disappear and are replaced with 3 dots on the right of the menu bar. Hovering over those dots allows you to select from the missing menu items.

    But! My favorite menu item, Mark Forums Read, is on the extreme left, and this is the first menu to go when the browser window is too narrow. Next is Search Forums, then Watched Forums, Watched Threads, etc., all the way to Forums You Ignore on the extreme right. I never use those menu items on the right. Plus the 3 dots are on the right. Why can't the forum software start gobbling up menu items from the right, rather than from the left?

    As a convenience, the NSA has put everyone with Russian connections on Ignore for Scott.

    Its all based on your screen resolution. And that is controlled by the software not by anything I program.

    SatelliteGuys 2016 is still my favorite style. It's clean and easy to navigate.

    Dang it dare2be, since I couldn't remember what the difference was, I tried SatGuys Classic. And now I can't see how to set it back! :(

    OK; I found it and put it back to SatGuys 2016 w/sticky menu. That's a mighty small style chooser link!

    Ugh, I just tried the SatGuys 2016 style. The font looks like it is rough and jagged. I don't know how it can be tolerated. :)

    I've never had to turn on ClearType before. I use my monitor's native resolution and everything else displays properly.

    Doesn't matter, I prefer the more compact menus and buttons of the SatGuys Classic.
