It's nasty I can't replace slightly modified menu's.
If you do the menus in a certain way, you can. For example, using Photoshop and/or a DL'd AE comp.
A field reverse option by placing everything one pixel layer lower. (no swap please)
I would argue that this is beyond the scope of an authoring application, and should not be added. If the Matrox is messing things up, lose it. (That's what I and many other did.)
