    Hey, i just used dvd flick for the first time, and it all worked out fine except, my title in the menu travels well off the television screen its 7 words and only 2.5 can be seen...
    what do i do about this,
    also, is there a way to enlarge the font on the title selection menu page.

    or is there a better dvd authoring program?, i just need to make a simple menu, nothing fancy.

    The problem is called overscan, and it's mainly due to your TV. Manufacturers deliberately do this, so that in the worst case, there is never a blank area on the screen. There are a couple of solutions:

    1) Adjust your TV so that it doesn't overscan so much.
    2) Get a better TV.
    3) Re-encode all of your movies to a smaller-than-standard size to compensate for your overscanning TV. Then, when you do upgrade to a better monitor, you will complain about all the wasted blank space on the screen.

    You can split up the title name so that it is on more than one line.
    Also you can preview the menu to see what it will look like.
    I don't believe it's related to overscan, as long titles will cut off on the preview screen.
    There is an overscan option in the advanced video settings.
