I've been working with the VisuStella MZ plugins to customize my menu screen, but after looking through documentation and some of the JavaScript commands in the plugin itself, I'm a bit stuck on figuring out a few things. I was hoping that someone could point me in the right direction on where I can further customize a few things with the menu!

1) The Time, Custom Variable, and Gold Windows are overlapping weirdly.

I have these windows displaying at the bottom of my main menu window, but for some reason the text is overlapping and I'm not sure why this is happening. I didn't change any of the default JavaScript code for the Playtime Window or Variable Window, and when comparing those sections with the template project, they seem pretty much the same. The main code I've changed so far is the List Style Settings for Portrait, but I don't see any spots to change those windows in there. Which area of the plugin should I be looking to make sure that these windows don't overlap/are spaced out evenly?

2) Moving the Menu Bar Position Down.
My goal is to move the menu items (like Status, Save, etc. at the top of the screen) down by about 50 pixels or so to match closer to this layout mockup that I sketched out in Photoshop:

I know these items can be styled and moved to different sides of the screen, but is it possible to move the items slightly down from their current position?

3) Adding a Variable Window at the top of the screen in addition to the bottom.
If I'm able to move the menu items down as described in my second question, I'm looking for a way to add a variable window at the top above these buttons so I can include text for an objective at the top, much like the image I linked above in the second question. Is it possible to create variable windows in multiple positions like the top and bottom of the screen?

Any help and guidance on what areas I should be looking for in the plugin and how to achieve these results would be appreciated!
