Not my topic here, but I think, someone should acknowledge your patch
at least, well done !
Though not obvious, but there are situations, where placing a menu e.g. at
the center can become handy.
When you watch fullscreen videos, or you are working inside a window, maybe
you shove the mouse pointer out of your view.
If you now call a menu by shortcut, you first have to search around the
edges, to find the menu. Here a fixed shortcut-menu position is useful.
Frankly, I've not tested the patch, I don't even know, which is the
current OB version.
Keep on with your great work,
