DE menu customization


How do you deal with your desktop environment menu customization please?
Manually? Or via some softwares like MenuLibre or Alacarte?
Do you have specific advice except reading https://specifications.freedesktop.org/menu-spec/latest/index.html?

I would like to rearrange my Debian 10 Xfce "Applications" menu but it doesn't seem to be so easy...
* MenuLibre: the interface is nice & the intention is laudable but I don't always succeed in moving applications from one category to another (category tags come back frequently after my modifications as some config files take precedence) + I lost my Wine submenu...
* Alacarte: it made my whole menu disappearing: my ~/.config/menus/xfce-applications.menu has been emptied after I moved an application some positions down. I've copied /etc/xdg/menus/xfce-applications.menu in ~/.config/menus and now all my categories are duplicated (removing ~/.config/menus/xfce-applications.menu totally doesn't help) ...
In short, more I dig with those tools, worse it becomes.
That's why I'm  wondering if this would not be easier to do the modifications manually...

Thank you in advance :)
Best regards,
