Your menus are correctly formatted. But I assume this is an Edit menu, 
and in Revolution that menu is treated specially (as is the Help menu.) 
In order to support cross-platform conventions, the last two items in 
the Edit menu are assumed to be a separator and "Preferences". The 
Preferences menu item then gets moved to the application menu on OS X, 
as Apple specifies. On Windows and MacOS, it remains in the Edit menu.

Make sure the last two items in your Edit menu are a separator and 
"Preferences" and you'll be fine. You can read more about these 
conventions in the docs. In Rev 2.6.x, see Topics->Menus.
