Hi Folks

I am hoping to get the menu background to fit the horizontal space of the containing <div> as opposed to a fixed pixel width and to have the menu items aligned to the left with a specified gap between

Please advise.

Thanks!

Hello Craig,

Please, go to Menu Positioning and check the "Yes, widen group to fit the entire width of", select Element with ID: and in the field next to it type NavBarDiv (as this is the div you refer to).

The next choice is up to you, If you choose "Yes, widen item so that they fit the entire group", your menu items will be widen so they whole menu can take up to your DIV's width.

If you choose "Do, not widen items (Show Background Left/Right)" this way the menu items will stay as you see them in AllWebMenus preview and the rest of the space (to catch the DIV's total width) will be covered with the background color/image you have select in Main Menu Group properties.

widen menu to act as menubar

After you make those changes, you need to re-compile your menu project and re-upload the produced files.

Let me know if you need further help.

Thank you.

Hello

Is it possible to attach a shadow to text in Allwebmenus.

If not, it would be a useful addition for a future build.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

This is not possible in a WYSIWYG mode in the application.

But, still you could have text shadow in your menu items.

You could have your menu as a CSS menu and then you can add a specific style (text-shadow in your case) to each item you want as inline style or even better create a new class in your CSS file for the text-shadow and apply that class to the menu items you want them to have a text shadow.

Please, find attached a zip folder that contains a simple AllWebMenus project that is compiled as CSS menu and a textShadow.html page that you can see the code and how it looks.

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!

Initial Email Subject:  make a sub menu layered behind it's parent menu item
Support Case Month: October 2013

I am trying to make a submenu appear beneath it's parent menu. How can I achieve this? So that the z-index of the sub menu is say 999 and the main menu is 1000

it has to do with hiding a part of a top border of the sub menu, but only the part below the parent button a top it.

Thanks,
Nick

Hello Nick,

In general this has to do with the "Appear Where" property.
In order to achieve that you need to go to Sub Groups Style -> Appears – Where -> and set the distance of the selected edge. Here I have set it to be -10 pixels so that It appears like in the screenshot below:

Note though that the z-index value is a global property, which means you cannot have different z-index value in main menu items than in submenu items.

Thank you!

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?

Thank you.

Hello,

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.

menu items external multi editing

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.

update menu from XML

This will import the menu items in your menu structure.

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!

Support Case Month: July 2013

Greetings. 
How am I capable of making all of the buttons in my menu to be the same, equal width?  I cannot seem to find a way to do this.

Thanks!
Todd

Hello Todd,

The property for what you want to achieve is Uniform Items.

Click on Menu Type and then check Uniform Items.

Then all the items will have the same width according the biggest width item in your menu.

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!
