Intro:
HTC's menu enhancement is very finger friendly but it also limits the number of items you can see at one time and you have to scroll down to get to the rest, which can be annoying at times.
This modification will make the items smaller so more items can fit (see screenshots).

Thanks to cybermaus for his original work on this here.

Requirements: WVGA device and you must already have large HTCMenus enhancement.
For VGA: mkucuksari made cabs here and etoy has a thread here. Thanks to them both.

UPDATE 28/01/2010
I've updated Small Menus for the latest HTC Menus version. There are no huge changes, but it does include a faster animation ratio and new grey default highlight.
I've also added matching Small Menus for Manila (Sense) - see screenshot below.

UPDATE 08/07/2009
A new version of HTC's Menu Enhancement has shown up in cooked ROMs (specifically I noticed it in Dutty's WM6.5 R4). HTC made a few changes like removing the up/down arrows completely and putting a scrollbar instead. I've updated the modifications for the new version. I haven't made a Medium size for v1.1 because the new version is already that size by default.

You must install the correct modification for your version of HTC Menus.
How to tell which version of HTC Menus you have:
New version 1.1 has a scrollbar instead of up/down arrows and the highlight is a little different. Pretty easy to spot:
HTC Menus 1.0: HTC Menus 1.1:


For HTC Menus 1.0
There are 3 different sizes: Medium, Small and Extra small.
See the screenshot below for size comparison. The original menu size is enough to display 7 items at once. With Medium that's up to 9, Small displays 11 and Extra small 13.
Choose the size that's most comfortable for your fingers. If you're not sure which one to install: I'd recommend Small, as its probably the best fit for most.
