When typing in a password how do I hide the contents of my password when Im typing it?
I.e PASSWORD: ******

How do I also put separators in my drop down menus, to illustrate a category or section i.e. print section has separators?

Hi Lucy168,

For the first, set the .PasswordChar property to * and it will do it for you.

For the second, in the menu editor, use "-" for the caption and name it as you wish. This will display a seperator bar instead of "-"
