After you have added what you wanted, you get a wizard to help you select the menu you want, you can select from template or start from scratch. TMPGEnc Authoring Works 5 comes with at least 12 templates but you can go to the site and download 4 free packs or you can purchase templates from the more selections. After selecting the template you are able to setup the structure of the menu, and how it will playback the tracks.

TMPGEnc Authoring Works 5 menu section lets you manage the track list layout where you can change tracks, edit the tracks in the page edit and the linking on how the buttons will do. When editing the page you can add new images to the page, edit the background, text, or add new text, and insert effects to the pages. When on the link edit, it is meant if you want to change the titles to go first like if you wanted title 4 to go before 3. But that is more if you have selected to manually create the menu from layouts as you can edit it more on the linking than on a template.

After you are finished with menu you can see a simulation of the menu and how well it works if you did it from layout.  Then you can go to the output which you can output it to a folder or burn it to a DVD or Blu-ray media disc.
