It would decrease the menu readability too much.

It would decrease the text area width too much.

>or see of \startsimplecolumns ... \stopsimplecolumns

Although I don't see how adding columns would provide
a solution - the chapter/section titles are in french, i.e.
usually longer than for ex. in english ( they could be
shortened and then most would become meaningless)
- where is that command documented ? I didn't find it in
the main manual, excursion, wiki, texshow.

Not really I'm afraid.  :O(

Thanks anyway.

Best,
Alan
