NSFontManager needs to have access to system's Font menu so that it can manage menu items based on current selection (e.g. setting "bold" or "unbold")
This can be either be done by letting NSFontManager to create system Font menu or be assigning Fonts menu to NSFontManager programmatically.

When NSFontManager and Font menu are both created by Gorm, there is no way how one can connect the Fonts menu to the NSFontManager.
NSFontManager shows "menu" as outlet but as it is impossible to select NSMenu itself (only NSMenuItem can be selected), the connection cannot be done manually.

Alternative approach could be to simply find Font system menu at runtime and assign it to NSFontManager (I believe that's what NextStep and Mac OS does).
