Hi Matt,
The second one is a limitation that they are NOT shown on menu entries (not to mention that several of their functions are not in the menu).  It was worded ambiguously… "could be shown" was supposed to indicate that it is an improvement that could be made, at least when there is a corresponding menu item, but that we haven't done it.  Sorry.  Maybe I should change that to simply say "are not shown."


For the first one, not as far as I know, but maybe those with programming expertise can suggest something devious.
