Recent items on Apple menu using NowMenus?

I'm trying to use NowMenus (6.5) to put a "recent applications" folder on my apple menu. (I've disabled the AppleMenuItems control panel to use NowMenus). The NowMenus control panel can assign a recent applications or documents item to any menu, but for some reason this option is dimmed when you switch to the apple menu. If I try to put the Apple control panel back to use just its recent applications function, it boots NowMenus out of the control panels folder.

How can I just use NowMenus to get a "recent apps" folder? That option is dimmed when you're editing the apple menu.

I know that there is a conflict between the original apple tools and the tools belonging to Now Menus. I think that veery of these tools uses different folders to store its data and you can't use both tools in the same startup. So as far as I know it's impossible to use one of these tools to create a folder for the other tool. If Now works without problems at your machine why don't you use only this tool. It can do quite more than the apple tools can??

Is it absolutle necessay for the folder to be in the Apple menu, or would using one of NowMenu's alternate menus on the menu bar work?

It´s not possible to do that with Now Menus but...
If you have the time, and don't want the recent application folder to be on another menu, why don't you create a new folder, make alias of your applications and put them in it, that folder can you then put in the apple menu.
