Sorry Rick,

I have yet to delve into OSX.  My next step would be trying to trace 
the menuPick with the debugger.

It would be really helpful if the mechanism Revolution uses in build 
Mac menubars were documented somewhere.

Does Rev put the last item of the last menu in About and duplicate 
the last item of the first menus in Applications?  If that is the 
case, how does one create a menu with Quit only under Applications? 
What menuPick gets sent to what button when Quit is selected from 

I hate working with mechanisms that do "the job" automatically when I 
have no clue as to the algorithm being applied.  When such "automatic 
mechanisms" don't produce the desired/expected result, one is left 
guessing what to tweak and where to tweak it.
