Revisions needed to Java-based cross platform application

Need some refinements and one bug fix to a Java-based desktop application that runs in Windows and Mac OS.

1. MODIFY MENUS

a. Add more space around the combo boxes pop-up menus in Study and Practice mode so they have room to breath: module pop-up, view pop-up, help pop-up (see menus screenshot).

b. Restore the tick for whichever menu item is selected (see Menus screenshot).

c. Add more space at the bottom of menu item in Windows so it doesn't sit too close to the bottom (see Menus screenshot).

d. Add a "switch" in the [url removed, login to view] file (lives in the Config folder) that can be set to show/hide the menu item Reword Questions. For example:

RewordQuestions=false

Default would be "true" but when set to "false", the menu item will be hidden in the View menu AND leave no gap (i.e., items below it will move up to fill gap). See attached Menus screenshots of previous and current menus.

2. REMEMBER SESSION ON QUIT IN MAC OS

When user presses Command+Q in Mac OS, remember where user left off when he relaunches application and selects Resume Session from the View pop-up menu. The command works if user quits by clicking on the close button top-left (similar to exit button in Windows top-right). Pressing Control+Q in Windows remembers previous session. This is a Mac OS only fix.

3. ABOUT SCREEN

Make the About window 340 pixels long (currently 300 px). The About window shows when user selects the About menu (I think this just requires a simple value change).

4. SETTINGS TOTAL BOX

In Windows, make the text box background white for "Total Questions" in the Settings screen (user should NOT be able to edit it, which is how it behaves now). See Settings Dialog screenshot.

5. RESULT DIALOG

In Windows, remove the bevel around the table (see Results Dialog screenshot).

6. SUMMARY SCREEN

Restore formatting. It was working fine but a bug was introduced in previous update (see Summary Screen screenshot). Summary screen shows when user clicks Summary button.

7. ORDERED/UNORDERED LISTS

a. Make all bullets square (smaller than current round bullet)

b. Change font for ordered lists so that the numbers use the same font as the list (see Numbered Lists screenshot)

Numbers 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 are quick fixes but 1 and 7 may stretch you a little. When the work is done, it should be done so NO new bugs are introduced.

Ideally, you should have access to Windows and Mac OS. However, I can test in Mac OS if you cannot get access to a Mac. Please ask for clarification should anything not be clearly expressed.
