RE: gvim Menu Selection Not Highlighted
- 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.

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 "Â»") and then
remaining items with two spaces to maintain justification. I use this
technique for my buffer menu and it requires very little overhead.
