Yeah if possible.

How about some persistence as to the EXPORT directory. It is a pain to have to crawl the directory tree every time I do an EXPORT. Perhaps set it as a "Preference" as well. :D

OK "settings for nearly everything", but no tooltip or alt fields. Yes this can be done as a post EXPORT edit of the <LI> tag, but this should not be necessary ina complete product of this type. Add it please?

How about some formatting for the button text? The ability to underline a character that corresponds to a "hotkey shortcut" would be wonderful. :cool:

I would like to be able to import the menu I built with the menu builder that was in the previous version of HTML Editior into Menu Builder. I don't like having to reinvent the wheel every time and having to retype all the button labels and links. I would also ditto the remarks on word wrapping. Having text spill out of the button does not look professional. Won't post my new menu until it meets my standards. Since CC removed the menu builder from HTML Editor before Menu Builder was really ready, I have been having to hand code additions and changes to my existing menu. Rush to market with a product before it is really ready destroys a company's image for quality workmanship.

Navigate on your pc to your old menu project and select open.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

The more I use it, the more I love MB. Color schemer is also an awesome tool when used in conjunction with MB. Here are my suggestions for Menu Builder.

New Suggestions
- When saving for the first time or doing a "Save As," have MB default to the last folder in which the .mb file was saved.

- If possible, I prefer the save dialog to be the one with the folders on the left and I double click the folders on the right to drill down. It takes longer to use the one that just lists folders.

- It's been debated in the RLMP forum, but numerical entry of the breakpoints would be a nice feature. It's certainly not necessary, but it would be more convenient when coordinating breakpoints with RLMP.

- Text size auto-reducing/-increasing
I don't know if this is possible with CSS. Can the text reduce or grow in size proportionately just as the button size does? For example, I'm working on a site right now that requires long text on the buttons. I don't want the text to wrap. The max width is 980 and the text fits in the buttons. However, by 790, the text is running off the right edge and by 750 it runs onto the button to the right. The only solution I see right now is multiple breakpoints at which I reduce the font size. It would be nice if the font would shrink automatically as the width decreases.

These items are already mentioned so I just want to agree with them.

- Autowrap submenu text to the size of the button.
"Bravo!" to CC for the ability to increase the size of the submenu buttons. Another option that would be nice would be to have the text wrap to a 2nd or even 3rd line.

- A fourth column in Design>Menu>Menu Buttons>All Buttons: "Selected".

- Export Persistence

There is a button you can click on the export dialog that takes you into that folder.

Scott, I can't find the button to which you are referring. See attached.

I would love the ability to change the background color in the Preview window. Its difficult working with white fonts and borders.

I second this suggestion too. Most programs that have backgrounds in them give you the ability to just click the background to change the color from dark to light, and a few give you the ability to change to an exact color. I would be happy just with the dark to light gradual changes with clicking the background area. :)
