How can I add an image to a menu Bar item (just like in WORD, Excel etc.)
I don't see any way doing it with the Menu Editor.

Running your function I get an error on this line:
SubMenu(i%).Caption = Picture3(i%).FontName +
           Str$(Picture3(i%).FontSize) + " Pnt"

After changing "SubMenu(i%)" to "hSubMenu(i%)" I get an error: "Expected Array".

Can you Please send a simple Working Example ?
