    I keep thinking I've asked the last question I need to ask today.

    I want to give my menu entries two lines with the first line bold and the menu item and the second line explanatory text about getting there. 

    However, I can't figurt out how to

    - put this text on a second line
    - have the first line appear bold then there is a hint

    Office does not use this on high level menu items, but it does use this technique on second level menu iitems such as Save As

    Hello Kathleen,

    To put a second line in the menu item text simply use the '\n' character in your code:

    radMenuItem1.Text = "New\nCreates a new document";

    Unfortunately we do not support different text styles right now. Thank you for submitting this feature. We've put this feature in our TODO list for the next version.

    Sincerely yours,

    Thank you for the information. I think this it's important to add the first line bolding, and additional formatting would be a nice to have. I'd be quite happy with a "first line formatting" approach from the theme. That would save me having to format each one individually. But either approach would be dandy.

    My users do want a near 100% Office UI look.
