Hi Graham,

It is possible to switch between menubars as a whole.
Define two menubars "menubar1" and "menubar2" using
the menu manager, and then switch: 
- Under Windows/Unix:
  hide group "menubar1"
  show group "menubar2"
- Under MacOS:
  set the menubar of stack "foobar" to "menubar2"

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
