I solved my problem!=A0 Seems that the argument to "Frame" should NOT, for =
some reason have quotes around it despite being an argument rather than a k=
eyword; since changing:
Style=A0 "ASMenu"=A0 Frame "MenuShift"

-to-

Style=A0 "ASMenu"=A0 Frame MenuShift

WORKS!

Thanks again for your response!

Jim

have you tried "*ASMenu" "*ASMenu*" ?
if they do not work, does any other database option for ASMenu ?
take one that really shows a difference... like VerticalTitle
i know for sure that one is working (cvs from a few
days ago) since i use that in my theme.

if the Frame option is then still not working, you have found a bug in
afterstep and should report so :)

i am sorry that i cannot clearly say if or what is wrong, but until
weekend i will not have access to afterstep...

greetings

Niklas
