Hmmm, I just tried and it works. Perhaps try again?


It just said "Start" after the icon for one, and Menu after the icon
for another.

Lol... that's exactly what I did, but I just intended it as an
example. You have a good point about keeping the text seperate.

So in that case, don't even change the icon, just put a piece of text
beside it (to its right) by default. (It would be a good option to
allow the user to turn off the text in the menu's options, then people
who liked it the old way can switch back. Kill two birds with one

Does that work?
