January 7th, 2013AWM: How can I change the color, the type, the size of a menu?
Knowledge Base support case for AllWebMenus, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.
Initial Email From: Alice
Initial Email Subject: color, type, size of menu
Support Case Month: December 2012
I have some concerns:
Is it possible to change the colors on any of the themes?
Also, can they be changed into whatever type bar I need, even if they aren't initially set up for that format (such as a horizontal theme bar converted into a vertical bar)?
I also notice that there doesn't seem to be a way to have auto-width for the text unless I just missed it, of course.
I'm loving what I see, and I'm hoping that all of your answers are "Yes!" If this is a case in which the purchased program allows for these options, I'm truly appreciate knowing.
Thank you again for all of the time you've spent in helping me!

Regarding your questions:
1) Yes, you can easily change the colors of all text-based themes through the Style Editor. To change the colors of image-based themes however, you will need to edit the images manually in a graphic editor.
2) Yes, you can change the type of the menu at any time (same for each of its submenus) from horizontal to vertical to sliding. Again you can do all this through the Style Editor under the “Type” property.
3) Yes, as a matter of fact the default menu has automatic width based on its text. There are a couple of things you need to check for this:
i) make sure that the Size property of the menu items is set to Auto
ii) make sure that you do not have “Uniform Items”:
I believe that you need to take some time to get to know AllWebMenus. The truth is that although it is very easy to create the first menu, it can be overwhelming to find all of its abilities, just because of the sheer volume (it can practically do anything you want). The best approach, I believe, is to go to the Style Editor and have a look at what you can change there. Then you can load existing Themes or Examples and check on the Style Editor which options are checked to achieve this result.
