You can detach the menus in gvim with the scissors symbol. This works, but I cannot click any of the items then.

Is there a way to fix this?


It's a bug in gtk2 (gnome bugzilla, launchpad).

Unfortunately, as you can see in the gnome bug report, gnome developers are no longer supporting gtk2, and the tear-off menu is a deprecated feature in gtk3. This means the bug is unlikely to be resolved upstream.

The author of vim is aware of the issue, so I'd expect it to be resolved in a future version of vim.
