Maybe you are misunderstanding the function of a menu.  A menu's only  
purpose is to *indicate* what the user wants to do. When your program  
receives an event saying the user picked (say) the Lucinda Grande  
font on a menu, it is the responsibility of the program to now set  
the font for the edit field. Just selecting a menu doesn't change the  
font in the edit field (even though it looks that way to the user).
