Genera 8.1.1 CLIM 1.1

    I'm still using CLIM1.1 waiting for CLIM2 to show up on other platforms

    Is there a way to have a pointer-sensitive item which is NOT highlighted when
    the cursor moves over it, yet is still "pointable". People are really bothered
    by all the stuff turning on and off as the move the mouse around - it doesn't
    bother me, but my users ...

I don't think there is a simple way to turn off highlighting globally,
because it's the philosophy of this implementor that feedback is one of
the very valuable things that CLIM uniquely provides.

I suppose you could always patch HIGHLIGHT-PRESENTATION, or define an
around method on the presentation type T:

  (define-presentation-method highlight-presentation :around
			      ((type t) record stream state)
    (unless *cretinous-user-p*		;-)

I didn't try the above, but it should just work.

    Also, is there a way to specify the size of the window created with
    "with-menu" - something like (with-menu (menu *a-f* :width 450 :height 540)
    ... )?

No, you have to use whatever sizing frob is around in CLIM 1.1.  I can't
remember its name any more.
