Why is setting up command bars through the designer so difficult?

I am finding the mainFrameBarManager and its Bar and BarItem relationship practically unuseable through the designer. I copy pretty much what is in the samples and can''t get anything to show in the command bar during design or run time. Also, there are really bad repainting issues in the designer and sometimes the runtime. One thing I can''t figure out is how to add a barItem to a bar through the designer. There seems to be no way to do it, yet somehow the samples have it done. Also, setting the ImageList to a barItem does not enable you to use the pull down for its imageindex. When you click the drop down, there''s no list of images. I had to set the index by hand. On the whole it seems half baked. Someone hopefully will tell me what I''m missing.
