Yes it is. Maybe you can find a shorter english string for it?

That will

Can't help you there, "saut rouleau" :-)

Every menu is a scrolling item, so you don't have to be afraid. Even the text
"Jump Scroll" is scrolling (it is 11 chars, but the cursor only gives you 10
chars to play with).

...this leads to my (perhaps) next feature for the player. Text stripping. A
text like "Jump Scroll" can be "JumpScroll" (removing space between a
small and capital letter). Might look awful, but can be worth a try...
