simple (?): how to test menus after building them

Your menus should work in "Run" mode, i.e. When you choose the Browse tool (you may need to click on the title bar of your app window first). But another way to test your menus is to use the "Suspend Development Tools" under the Development menu.

The Application Menu may look a little different and will still say LiveCode. Quit will also quit LiveCode, not just your app, so that's one to watch for, but you could add a condition to check for the Development Environment, save before testing.
