Hey, Max, William, or anyone else who knows, how do you add ddn resources to extras.rsrc? For having menu title and selections with caps. The only way I've been able to do it, is to apply a theme that has them, then make a new theme with TP, do the merge with installed components thing, then change all the graphics I want to change, export to .dlta, and finally edit the extras.rsrc itself. Whew! Sorry for the run-on sentence.

Anyway, that is obviously not the ideal method. Plus I haven't found one theme that has both caps for 'menu title selected' and 'menu item selected'.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I believe the original way of doing it is downloading Menu Enhancher (which I think is only availible for panter in the dxb theme, www.desktopper.net).

From there you simply copy the ddn resources and the data fork of the extras.rsrc to your own theme.

I think that should do it...if there's not any other resource you need, might be documentation in the dxb theme (Menu Enhancher sample)

Create a new theme in ThemePark using File -> New -> New guiKit Package. Navigate to Themes. Add or Import a theme. Press the Options button. Click the "Use enhanced menu customization" checkbox.

The only problem is, I'm making a dlta theme, I don't want to use shapeshifter at this point.

You can export this to a dlta without problems.
