Thanks David

just for me to understand exactly, in the comparison picture, the part on the right is how it is now. The part on the left is how you'd like it to be ?

The difference being that on the right the popup button is bigger than needed to accomodate the text ?

So, it's a problem with the sizing of popup buttons ?

Makes sense.

look at the comparison pic. You can make the popup button (not the items!) any size you want. This is the size that does not make the contents to be "..." in the text.

Are you sure that it is a Renaissance bug ?

I tried some Apple OS X applications (eg, Mail, Address Book) looked at their NSPopUpButtons, and they seem to look in the same way. When you click on them, they popup and take quite a lot of white space, with no obvious relationship to the control below - but confined to the size of the window.

So maybe that's how popup buttons look on OS X ?

See attached picture.
Any idea how to fix this?

The markup code is:

<popUpButton autoenabledItems="no" target="#NSOwner" id="joinSemantic_popup" action="joinChanged:" halign="right">
<popUpButtonItem tag="0" title="Inner" />
<popUpButtonItem tag="1" title="Full Outer" />
<popUpButtonItem tag="2" title="Left Outer" />
<popUpButtonItem tag="3" title="Right Outer" />
