Funny you should mention this.  I always thought this made sense but
some how got trapped by the left side stuff.  AutoCAD - the DOS version
and I think the Windows versions to this day - has the menu on the right
side. Most other CAD programs I've seen and used were the same.
   Ergomonically I feel it's easier slide the mouse to the right than to
the left.  Any lefty's out there that care to comment.  Private mail is
best so we don't clutter this list.
