Customising the admin panel: Wordpress

Hi there,

Wondered if someone might be able to help me with this!

I wanted to give a client access to some of the higher order settings on the admin panel, such as 'Appearance -> Menus', while still keeping her authority as 'editor' - (I do not want her to be able to edit css/php code, alter user passwords, etc). I have tried using the Custom Admin plugin, but the settings for editor seem to have 'Appearance' switched off. Anyone know of a possible way around this?

Hope those help! I've definitely had to deal with that before and have tried a number of these :)
