You're welcome :)

I often press the "Compile all" button in the IDE just to see any errrors
The errors will also show when selecting the "Make exe" option

Yes it looked like a simple oversight/mistake as your other menu names were
well defined.
the hard to find ones are just the worst.

And yes to the menu names there.
The menu name is also used as the Menu Object pointer reference.

So using "Settings" as the menu name makes the IDE do something like this..

Dim Settings As Menu = New Menu(mParent)
it creates a menu object called Settings then sets the Object.Name as
Settings too.
then using Settings["Sub/Name"] used the menu instead of the Settings.class
hence the "not an array" error.
