When I enable Themes in Delphi XE3 and have a MainMenu as well as an Actionlist and a toolbar connected, the MainMenu and the Toolbar overlap.

Seems to happen when Standard Actions are connected to the Menu.

Seems to be a bug!!!

Which XE3 Update version do you have installed?

Have you already tried the latest version update 2?

I just did update No1. Didn't know there was a No 2 already.
Maybe somebody with update 2 installed, could test this?
It's very simple to do and would save me a whole days work,
if it doesn't work

Update 2 is available since last week.

It is just an idea, that it could work with the latest update. But I also haven't installed update 2  by now.

I will probably find time to try it out tomorrow...

Solved it myself. It's not a perfect solution, but these are the steps.

1) Set Align to alNone
2) Position = poDesktopCenter
3) Instead of setting Align to alClient, in OnCreate set Height to Screen.Height - 30; and
     Width to Screen.width - 30;

FYI: Setting WindowState to wsMaximized in the Object Inspector sorts it out
