Thank you very much, it works well. Further: How do you get a documentation
line such as :
L: documentation for left click; M: documentation for middle click; ...
What do I have to use to specify (item wize) that a documentation is for the
left, middle,... gesture (or is it :select, :describe,...)? The only
available keyword now is :documentation.
You could write your own translators that use the left, middle, and
right-hand buttons. CLIM does not directly support the notion of left,
middle, and right-hand buttons because that is not portable.

Do you want to say that usually you call MENU-CHOOSE from inside menu-choose-
from-drawer ? If not, how do you do this with MENU-CHOOSE-FROM-DRAWER ?
The same way.
