changing a menu

To display an existing menu group in the Menu Manage Window, click the 
"Edit" button on the MM Window and then select the desired menu group from
the "Edit Existing Menu Bar" window that appears.  I found this a little
confusing at first myself--I was expecting maybe a "View" or "Select"

You can also change the contents of a menu button with scripts, treating
them just like return-separated lists of text in a field. (Just be sure the
scripts of the menu buttons work with whatever changes you make!)

Hope this helps.
