Queries whether customize menu is automatically enabled.
Whether or not a menu item to customize the touch bar can be automatically added to the main menu. It will only actually be added when a touch bar hardware or simulator is present. Defaults to 0. Setting this property to 1 is the recommended way to add the customization menu item.
But if non-standard placement of the menu item is needed, creating a menu item with an action of toggleTouchBarCustomizationPalette can be used instead.
