    I have seen the many posts on how to add shortcuts to a menu item and I understand how to do that.  My problem is that I would like for the shortcut text to be left justified to the menu and the normal text to be right justified.  For example:

    Cut                           Ctrl + X
    Copy                        Ctrl + C
    Paste                       Ctrl + V
    Delete                            Del

    Instead, as it is now, I have to add this text to my menuitem.Text and it is not aligned

    Cut      Ctrl + X
    Copy      Ctrl + C
    Paste      Ctrl + V
    Delete      Del

    This justification seems to be the standard behavior for pretty much any application that displays shortcuts on the menu.  Can anyone tell me how to do this or if it is even possible?

    Thanks in advance,
    Lee

    Hello Lee,

    Thank you for your question.

    The only workaround I can give to you currently is to use different spacing to align the text as you did when writing the right justified shortcuts in your post. I have checked it and it looks ok.

    Do not hesitate to write me back if you have more questions.
     

    All the best,

    Nick,

    Thanks for your reply.  I have marked this as the answer, but also copied it to the New Products forum as a suggestion for a future enhancement.  I hope it will get the appropriate attention from there.

    Thanks again for your help,
    Lee

    Hi Lee,

    It is certainly a great suggestion and the current implementation is not very good. Thank you for your post.
