Damn :-( :-( Keep getting caught out by toolbar text translations.
Manuel: Pester/remind me about adding a new HIG recommendation to avoid using text in the toolbars unless there is plenty of free space available, this one has caught us several times already.

Yes, I guess is the option we now have. We will need an icon, or icons for the current 3 demo games. We could use a single icon like TamTam Synth's sound presets (a memorise like document would do), or try for a custom icon for each game like Walter tried for Abacus – if there are good candidates (addition, letters, sounds).
Raises an interesting issue regarding disabling of a primary toolbar icon with a secondary palette, or do we just disable the demo game buttons on the secondary palette. Need to watch for corner cases, e.g if the demo game secondary toolbar is already open when a user clicks customize. Perhaps we do not need to disable the demo game selection now that we have the warning message (i.e. allow users to load in different demo games so they can see/edit the cards directly in customise mode)?

Sure. Do we still have time before we need to make an official release?
