Just tried it here.

Start the menu editor.

Highlight "Accessories"

Hit "File-New Menu" in the Alacarte menu.

Call it whatever you like ( I now have a submenu under "Accessories" named
"Foo" ;-) )

Click your submenu and add entries ad lib...  "File - New Entry"

Right click the new entry, edit the properties as usual..

If you don't like the new entry, hit Edit - Delete while the entry is

Seems to work OK here ...
