Yes, Rick...I did have to configure these settings first, but you
save it to a keystroke combination and its always available. To do
everything I described, figure about 30 minutes or less. The hard
part is defining the color definitions used to swap the grayed out
items in the menu . While the active menu item is one color (black),
the inactive menu item is two colors (a gray and a white shadow). You
need to swap both of those; the gray to black and the white to the
menu background color, although there is a color picker icon to help
you. It makes it easier to select the color if you first zoom the
image to 200 to 400%.

There is a wizard that takes you through the configuration of a
profile, the "Add New Profile Wizard". I'd be happy to help you along
if you get snagged...get it? Snagged? SnagIt? :-)
