Absolutely. I fudged that for NuScratch by making a menu split and have  'more...' last entry if it would take up more than (I think) 75% of display height. OK for a quick solution but a proper scrollable menu would be superior.

Raspbian (the Raspberry PI OS) provides menus that have an up arrow at the top and a down at the bottom (not much use the other way round!) which work... meh. RISC OS menus gain a perfectly normal scroll bar if they need it. Much better.

A bug in the code is worth two in the documentation.
