It seems you haven't got a repy to your question, yet. In the
menubar script (or the script of the group that serves as
menubar), you could put a menuPick handler. Have a look at the
docs for info about the menuPick handler.
The menuPick handler could call scripts in the main stack or
send commands to other stacks and objects. Depending on what you
are trying to do, your menuPick handler might look like
on menuPick theMenuItem
case "Something Else"
send "runSomeHandlerInSubstack" to the topstack
The second "case" will work fine, if the main stack also has a
"something" handlers. It would be easiest to put all scripts in
the main stack, without using the "send" command, but if each of
your substacks should act differently upon a user's menu
selection, "send" is a very useful command.
