view layout [text "Menu" [choose/offset ["a" "b" "c"] func [face][print face/text] screen-offset? face]]

It does not seem to me too complex changing "50x50" with 2 words (screen-offset? face). The problem is lack of documentation. I'ld be happy if solutions in C would be of the same complexity. A better choose function should permit to set the offset automagically. the point is that it can be done: only 2 or 3 lines of code to add to the choose function. --- Ciao Romano
