Does anybody else get this --

create a new stack
insert a menubar with the default items (with Mac menubar option)
issue an "ask file" command
close dialog
check Edit menus - all menu items are enabled

But. . .
issue an "ask file" as sheet command
close dialog
check the Edit menus - Cut and Copy are disabled

??? (Hope I'm not being a total dope here . . .)
