    Default lengthen distance between JMenuItem title and shortcut(accelerator)

    I have a text editor as part of my program, so, as usual, i made an edit menu as well cut/copy and paste. i set the accelerator of cut to CTRL + x as a test to see if i did it right. I did and I was pleased. Except, its a little too close to where it says "Cut". is there a way to increase this distance?

    I am a begginer but ill take a shot!
    I think if you add a few spaces after the name cut like...
    s = ("Cut     ")
    //imagine s is the info on cut
