To add a command to a menu
- Do one of the following:
Click the Menus tab.
In the Menu Tree, select the menu to which you want to add the new command.
Choose Insert > Menu Sub-Item.
Type a name for the new command, and then press Enter.
Assign a command string to the command you added by doing one of the following:
- Choose Tools > Customize.
- Type customize and then press Enter.
In the Help String field, type the text to be displayed in the status bar when the cursor is positioned over the new command.
To add another command, repeat steps 3 through 7.
When you have finished, click Close.
- In the Available Commands list, choose the command, and then click Add Command.
- In the Command field, type the command string, and then click Add Command.
TIP When you type a name for a new command, you can specify an access key by including an ampersand (&) immediately preceding the letter you want to use as the access key. Be sure not to assign the same access key to more than one menu or command within a menu. For example, if you add a command named Quick Line to the Insert menu, including an ampersand immediately preceding the letter Q causes that letter to appear underlined in the menu. You can then select that command by displaying the menu and pressing the Q key.
