where can I define/set the width of left-side pane of the Backstage?

The problem is, when having longer texts/buttons/icons on the left-side pane it will be wrapped into 2 or more lines. Basicly no problem, but then the highlighting is not at the right position. You can test this very easily with applying longer texts at Your RibbonBarMDI_DocView sample.

It’s the <code>bsv_top_level_menu</css> tag. Its width set to <code>8.5em</css> in the <code>CExtRibbonBackstageViewWnd::OnRcgwGenerateContent()</css> virtual method. You can override it and append re-defined widths for the <code>bsv_top_level_menu</css> tag by appending the new CSS block.
