    Customizing pop up menu graphics

    grynchman
      I want to create my own graphics for the cells in the pop up menus. I read how to do it - create and save a style and navigate to the menu bars folder. But no matter what I do, when I create a pop up menu, select graphic as the type, then go to appearance and styles - it's not in there. Where do I place my custom drop down graphics and how do I access them?

          Have you exited the program and then reloaded it after creating and
          saving your styles?

            Better yet, unless you're just building a mock up, exit the program,
            restart and don't use them at all. They are a nightmare to maintain in a
            production web site.

            There are far better solutions out there, such as Project Seven's pop
            menu magic.
