Many thanks, and great to see that this must-have app is still being 

However, a tiny grump, I'm afraid! The new versions come not only with 
their own StrongMenu Options files, but these are also locked. I'm 
sure that all we users have our own StrongMenu and Options files, and 
when the previous version was issued it took me a lot of 
head-scratching to work out why I couldn't access my own StrongMenu 
when StrongMen was run. I knew what to do this time, though. Should 
there be a bit about this in the Installation file, perhaps?
