Class (inherits from MenuItem)

Used to place menu items in the Application menu on macOS. A menu item subclassed from ApplicationMenuItem is automatically moved to the Application menu for macOS builds. On all other target platforms, the menu item appears where you put it in the Menu Editor. You cannot place menu items directly in the Apple or application menus in the Menu Editor.

To use ApplicationMenuItem, create the menu item under the menu that you want to use for the Windows and Linux builds of the application and then use the Inspector to change its super class to ApplicationMenuItem. Otherwise, set up the menu item normally.
