      Hi Steve H.,

      Yes, I was expecting to see a see a checkmark along side the menu representing the current state. However, I'm not particular about the type of indication; I just think that a software as fine as gVim should indicate the current state.

      Thanks for the workaround.

      Sincerely,

      Steve Siano

      By indication, are you expecting to see a checkmark along side the
      menu representing the current state? I don't believe the gVim menu
      system provides this capability at the moment, although I would like
      to see it myself.

      As a work around, you could modify the menu scripts to precede the
      current item with a character (like nr2char(187) or "»") and then
      remaining items with two spaces to maintain justification. I use this
      technique for my buffer menu and it requires very little overhead.
