Do you have any comments on this as I suspect the new version I have just download will not work
any better in this respect than the old version. If this menu cannot be made to work under Wine then it
is a waste of time trying to use Miditzer on Linux or iMac.

I have not used the Miditzer under Wine/Linux either but will the keyboard shortcut alt+spacebar open that menu?

Thanks for the tip John - answers below:

Linux Puppy CD version - No but it does open with the mouse (I still do not know why).

Linux Puppy Slacko-6.3.0 - Yes a very useful discovery because I can now test it properly.

iMac - No the "M" menu does not display at all and Alt-Space has no effect on anything.
This is a great pity because eplayWin32 functions 100% correctly and the Miditzer
functions well enough to use (but inputs cannot be set up and pause leaves ciphers).

Whoever has the source code to Miditzer 216 needs to get their thinking caps on
an adjust it so it shows a normal Windows menu!! This done it will be useable on
iMac and Linux (There may be latency problems but if so a native version of fluid synth
will probably make it acceptable).
