[fpc-pascal] Lazarus IDE Question

I am trying to create a menu bar using Lazarus.  I drop the TMainMenu 
icon onto the form.  Then I modify the Items in the Object Inspector and 
can get the first menu item, but that is all.  I can't enter more menu 
headings or submenu items.  I checked a Delphi reference and saw a 
similar mechanism, but it provides little dashed boxes to lay out the 
whole menu structure.  The corresponding structure in Lazarus seems inert.

I then tried bypassing the IDE and duplicated the code on the form, 
changing the menu items to item1, item2, item3, etc.  There must be 
other necessary code hidden somewhere else because this attempt failed 
to compile.

Is this one of the things that doesn't work in Lazarus?  Am I doing 
something wrong?  Any suggstions?  Is there a Lazarus-specific forum to 
discuss questions like this?
