Weird. At any rate, when editmenus are true you should see the menubar
group in the stack window, so not sure why you don't. It may be
inherited from some other stack. But this may give some info when
entered into the message box:
put the menubar of this stack -- will tell you the group if there is one
set the menubar of this stack to empty -- remove it
If you do get a group reference to a menubar group, you can then delete
the group. You may need to use the "long name of grp (the menubar of
this stack)" if the menu is being inherited from somewhere else (any
substacks in your mainstack?)
