Hi DJ,

No it would not be possible to import a different menu into MB. It would be the same as trying to open a Dreamweaver file in MS Paint.

The good thing though is it is very easy to recreate any menu using MB!

That menu isn't responsive.;)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Here's my S-Drive site with
examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.

Hello,
Would it be possible to build in the ability to have alternate text show up when you hover over a button?
When you are doing edits in the Hover column could that be built in as a choice?

I saw someone else mentioned having the text automatically word wrap in the buttons also, that would be great.
I know you can enter a <br> manually but the wrap function would be really good.

It would be nice to have a live code preview of what is visually generated. That way, the user can also make adjustments to the code of the menu to get things looking exactly how they want. At the moment, I'm finding I'm having to make a fair few changes to the CSS code that is generated. It would be nice to be able to do all this within the program.

Is there a video of someone actually creating a navigation for a website from scratch. I know there is one for loading it into a website but it would be good to see one where you size and design the navigation to a particular size and then export it to a website

Hi Tony,

I have been thinking about doing one. The only problem is finding the time. The best way to learn the software is using it. Experiment with it... There is so much you can do with it that it would take a thousand tutorials to show you everything.

If you try to use it and still having issues let's us know and we can help you with your specific project.

How about in a settings page allow us to specify the paths that we want to use as default for things like export, load, save etc - it gets quite tiring constantly navigating to the structures that I want to use rather than some default. This could apply across a lot of the coffeecup range of software.

In menu builder how about allowing a custom graphic to be displayed behind the menu when you select the preview menu options.

So many posts here - is there and imminent update to the software or at least a roadmap incorporating suggestions posted here? The more I use it the more I can see potential but if only...

More precise control of the breakpoints (ie being able to type them into a table) would be really good and the ability to lock this so you can't accidentally modify it by clicking on the "slider" control above your menu would be excellent.

Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
