font size : select your object with the pointer tool, choose the font 
size you want in the text menu
pre-select an item : look at the menuhistory property in the 
transcript dictionary
get some result of the user choosen item : get the selectectedtext of 
your object

For a hierarchical menu :
type the parent item then return and tab and type your submenu : it 
will appear as a submenu.
