I created an AS Studio app without the menu bar items except the application itself - I had items such as File, Edit, Window, Help, etc. deleted because I thought I would never need them at all (darn!).
Now, I am trying to put back the “Help” menu into the menu bar. I could put it there as a Cocoa sub-menu addition and label it as “Help” and it would appear in the menu bar. However, when I add a menu item under it the item is grayed out and unavailable.
How can I activate that item? BTW, I had all Help resources added to the project the standard way via “Add…” to the project method.
I did as you suggested and the Help menu is back on the menu bar with the menu item for help now active --as if it’s never been deleted.
For those who might be encounter the same problem, here’s what I did (based on Bruce’s suggestion):
In the IB, select the menu item under the Help menu of the menu bar then do a “control-drag” and drag it to the “First Responder”. A new window will open up. Look for the “ShowHelp” item and click it then click the button “Connect”. And, that’s it.
