I set "the defaultmenubar" by script "on openstack".

I never used it.

Menubars on macOS have some caveats:
1. Last menuitem in your HELP menu should read: About XXX(Your app)...
and will go as first menuitem into the application menu

2. Last menuitem of your "EDIT" menu (-> Preferences) will also go into the application menu -> Settings...

3. Last menu of your "FILE" menu (-> Quit) will also go into the application menu.
