This may help:

The instructions are for converting HyperCard stacks but they apply to 
any LC app. You must make a complete menu bar (partial entries won't 
work,) the About and Preferences items must be located in certain 
positions, and it doesn't matter whether you use Menu Builder (a nice 
shortcut) or do it by hand, everything on the stack still needs to move 
down on the card. In fact, that's the first issue the above tutorial 
deals with, and it gives you a script to help with that.
