February 3rd, 2014AWM: How can I edit a lot of menu items in a fast pace?

My first project is the following:
- a simple vertical menu with a header and approximately 60 entries
- menu to open when the header is clicked (or potentially visible always)
- each menu has an embedded link
There are so many choices and options in AllWebMenus that I can't decide where to start.
Also, I have the menu lines with the associated links in a spreadsheet. Can I load those without retyping?

I would recommend you to use the External Multi Editing option so that you wont type the items again and you will be able to faster edit your menu items.
In order to do so, go to Tools -> External Multi Editing and Export XML file in your existing project. This will export your menu in an .xml file. Open that xml file in Microsoft Excel or any other SpreadSheet program. Then, paste there your items that you have in the other spreadsheet file, just be careful to be in the correct fields.
Save the xml file.
Then, go back to AllWebMenus -> Tools -> External Multi Editing and click on Update menu from XML file and select the xml file.
This will import the menu items in your menu structure.
Let me know if you need more information.
