It is not very clear what you want.

If you want to create a new menu, you could do it in the Menu Manager (Menus -> Menu Manager).

If you want to create link to an already existing menu then you could choose the menu item type Alias.

The sentence has to be "If you want to create link to an already existing menu item then you could choose the menu item type Alias.".

The menu item type Alias is at the bottom of the list in the image you have attached.

Great, thank you!

My confusion comes from the fact that I am trying to reproduce a menu item already in my site, and that menu item is listed in the menu as: "Menulink". It's this "Menulink" that I could not find anywhere in the list.

Thanks for your help, now I understand.
