Transferring Menus to Photoshop and Back
If you want to transfer a menu that you’re working on in Encore over to Photoshop, select the Menu Editor window or select the menu in the Project window, and choose Edit → Edit in Photoshop (or select it from the right-click contextual menu, or use the next-to-last button in the Tools palette). Encore launches Photoshop, if it isn’t already loaded, and opens the menu as a file ready to be edited (see Figure 6-3).

You also can save a menu from Encore as a Photoshop file, to then import and edit in Photoshop. Choose Menu → Save Menu as File to save a menu as a PSD file.
To view the structure of the menu file within Photoshop, use the Photoshop Layers palette. Select the Move tool at the top right of the Tools palette, if needed, and click to enable the Show Bounding Box option at the top left of the Photoshop window, and then click through the entries in the palette to highlight the corresponding items in the menu window (see Figure 6-4).
