Confirmed, the Items is duplicated the exact times, but the displacement
doesn't work. Will fix this.

It's intended for converting a Rectangle or Circle into a Polygon, but
in the newest Versions Rectangles or Circles are also Polygons it's some-
how no longer needed. In the 1.1 Development Branch the Icons will be re-
placed by a menue containing more predefined Forms.

That's intended for use with Polygons over Textboxes to keep Text out
some parts of the polygon. I use it for creating DropCaps Letters.

This is a special char which is replaced by the current page number.
To get 2 Digit Pagenumber you must place ALT+# 2 times.

Currently not, because Qt doesn't support shortcuts for Submenues,
at least I haven't figured it out how it works.
