  2. Click the Add Custom Menu button, and the Add Custom Menu window opens.

  3. In the first box, enter the name of the menu you would like to add. To add a ToolTip to this menu choice, enter it in the second box. Click OK.

Adding a Custom Sublevel Menu Choice

After you have created a custom top-level menu choice, you can add a submenu choice to it. To accomplish this, follow these steps:

  1. In the Menu table, select the name of the new top-level menu choice that you just created and then click Add Custom Menu. The Add a Submenu option is now available and selected, as shown in Figure 12.

  5. When you are finished, click OK.

    NOTE

    When you have finished adding new menus, you can change the order in which they appear, either across the top menu or in the Action pane. To do this, you change the appropriate value in the Order column.

  6. Before you leave this window, click Save Changes, in the upper-right corner, to ensure that you do not lose the new menus or any other changes you have made.
