To customize menus:

  1. Choose Tools > Customize.
  2. On the Customize dialog, pick the Menus page.
  3. In the Save In drop-down list, choose whether to save this changed menu for the application (for example, Writer) or for a selected document.
  4. In the section <name of the program (example: Writer) > Menus, select from the Menu drop-down list the menu that you want to customize. The list includes all the main menus as well as sub-menus, that is menus that are contained under another menu.

Use the up and down arrows next to the Entries list to move the selected menu item to a different position.
