Hi John

so basically some menu items are shown twice - in different menus, right?

In the section of code where the menus are created/updated, there is
the comment pasted below. Please can you check that this is the
correct for mac?


   * The User Interface Guidelines for each platform specify different locations
   * for the following items.
   * Project Properties:
   * Gnome, Mac - File menu above print commands
   * Kde, Win - Settings menu (Win doesn't specify)
   * Custom CRS, Options:
   * Gnome - bottom of Edit menu
   * Mac - Application menu (moved automatically by Qt)
   * Kde, Win - Settings menu (Win should use Tools menu but we don't have one)
   * Panel and Toolbar submenus, Toggle Full Screen:
   * Gnome, Mac, Win - View menu
   * Kde - Settings menu
   * For Mac, About and Exit are also automatically moved by Qt to the
Application menu.
