Preview is totally different

Okay, so I used Fresco as the starting point for a shopping cart.
I changed the navigation bar to Beta Pro.
As far as I can tell, the nav bar is the only item of Beta Pro in use.
All the background colors, etc have been changed.
The cart looks as intended in Shopping Cart Designer Pro.
I save it and open SC Creator. I preview the shop there and it looks totally different.

What am I doing wrong?

Please see the attachment in this post and the following that show the difference. The green is as intended, the blue is what shows up.

Here's a dumb question... but I'll ask anyway just in case :D
In the Designer, did you Export your customized theme to Shopping Cart?

Yes, I did.

Right now I'm trying to figure out if it is exporting to the place I want it to go. Doesn't seem like you have any options and the folder it is exporting to is going to the mac documents folder, rather than my windows 7 documents. I open it from the windows partition, but then it is saving it to the mac partition. I think this is the problem.

When you open the Shopping Cart, are you able to browse to it from within the program?

Maybe someone else around here knows how to deal with the partitions situation... HELLO?

You said you changed your navigation bar to Beta pro. Can I see the steps you took to accomplish this.:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Does anyone know how to add to the navigation bar? For instance, it is only home, shop home, view cart and categories. I would like to add to other pages to the main navigation menu and I am having a difficult time figuring it all out.

Hiya Krown,

This isn't a possibility at this time. I and I'm sure many others, are hoping that this is something that will be possible in a future update, but the best way to be sure you get what you want (or at least what you want is known to the devs) is to post it in the suggestions thread of the program you're wanting to have things added to. Right now though, the only pages that will show up are Home, Shop Home, Categories and View Cart. Home only shows up if you have it linked to an external home page. All the rest of the pages will show up under the Home or Shop Home button on the menu as a drop down.

Please do make the suggestion, it's definitely something many have commented on over the years.
