Why can't I exclude the Help menu in a custom menu set from appearing both in a "real" FMP file and a runtime? (See attached) Is there a trick I don't know?

Thanks,

Rich

Maybe because the help menu will answer your question?

"Mac OS: If you do not include a Help menu in your menu set, the operating system will install an empty Help menu. You cannot remove this menu, change its position on the menu bar, or change its title."

*laugh* The irony isn't lost on me.

I hate that--as a developer, it's a distraction to runtime users that it should be there. I'll just put in the runtime manual that it's a quick way of looking up menu item names. It's lame, but it's face-saving; it's better than just saying, "Ignore this."

Thanks!
