Using FC 19 - How can I interact with very long menus?

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I am using FC 19 with the default Gnome setup. Assuming this is Gnome shell, some version 3. Some common apps have very long menus. An easy example is Gedit and the languages menu. This is so large that it is taller than my desktop. I have looked in gconf-editor, and have searched the internet - I cannot find a way to get either a scrollbar, or columns or some other way to see all the options in the menu. How can I see and select options in this long menu? (HowTos)
