I had this issue, too, sometimes and I have no clue why this sometimes happens and sometimes not.
I guess it works better if you use a lightbox composition widget?
Cheers for your confirmation that I'm not alone.
It is a super simple one-page site, with 2 images and some text. If it had a bunch of moving parts and crazyness going on I could see how it could possibly go sideways. This, on the other hand, is simple, so it must be yet another bug in Muse.
Okay, maybe somebody out there knows the secret to success? Do I need to stand on one foot, with my right arm raised at 36.2 degrees while I chant and make sure the trigger is placed 10px left of the center line of the page...sigh....
Now I know what´s wrong, you forgot to laugh like a seagull. Then it should work .
What about my suggestion to use a lightbox, empty as well by CLEAR ALL CONTENT • CLEAR ALL STYLING?
BTW, singing like a seagull is never wrong, promise
Thats the key...I have been howling like a wolf. (and banging my head against my desk)
I am starting the whole thing fresh and I'll try the lightbox this time.
On the one hand, I hate muse, on the other hand, I WANT IT TO WORK SO, SO MUCH!
I swear that in the time I have spent trying to get things to work in Adobe I could have learned to hand code!
Well, this depends on your age. And as far as I might have to design first in Sketch or Photoshop or Indesign and then start to code? No way. If you keep some rules like in this thread: Muse not redirecting to tablet version and keep it simple, it works pretty well.
This head banging stuff works pretty good, too. Did it several times.
Do you mind, sending a .muse so we could have a closer look at it?
BTW, a breakpoint at 320px does not really make sense. What did you want to achieve with that?
Just give us a reduced to your issue created .muse with as much content areas (just colored) maybe anchor links to link at and your desired menu. This seems too strange.
I will in an hour or so. I need to recreate it without any of the clients content as it would be bad form to put their "site" out there in any way shape or form without their approval.
I am now in Indesign working on a different project. Print this time, where I know what I'm actually doing...most days!
I can tell you at this second I can induce the behaviour in the browser by dragging the window until the mobile menu icon appears, click on it...menu opens...drag window...menu closes...click on burger again...window sort of opens, but now no menu content in it. Not that this would be a common usage as mobile users won't be resizing the browser window, but this isn't the only way the behaviour happens. Most times I open it on my phone and it either works or it doesn't. Random it seems.
Yes, I had the same. Let`s have a closer look at it. Maybe we have to report a bug.
And yes, of course no client data. A really reduced to your issue .muse.
Sorry, haven't had a chance to get back to this issue. I can tell you that if I mess with the width of the browser in any way shape or form after I have already clicked the trigger and closed it .....it won't open correctly again. Probably not an issue for someone on a mobile device, but if someone opens the page on a laptop and makes the window smaller they will have to either reload the page to be able to navigate the site...or sit there wondering why my clients website doesn't work. Thats not good!
So..yes a bug for sure.
Adobe Muse team...anybody know about this or what to do about it?
Couldn`t you provide a .muse? Just the composition – any graphic element – any menu item (if automatic, add some empty pages).
and reduce to the mobile menu section you see, that I managed it quite well. It opens and closes as often as I want.
I chose a lightbox composition widget instead of a blank composition widget. This way it works, I guess (don`t ask me why).
Hope this helps
Thanks for the link.
OMG....I have so many questions for you! hahaha...
But I will stick with the one at hand.
- When you open the file drag the browser window until the burger shows up
- click it and a menu should open
- click the close trigger
- resize the browser window to a desktop size
- let go
- Grab edge of browser and drag it until you get the burger again
- click it and you "may" find it does not open correctly
- It doesn't seem to matter if I use a blank composition or lightbox
How did you upload to CC? I never did it? No need for dropbox? Great!
- When you open the file drag the browser window until the burger shows up
- click it and a menu should open
It does not show the menu items, at the first "hamburger menu breakpoint" I do only see the close button
I then check : "should hide at first" in the control panel (translation from German might be not 100%)
No change – still looks bad.
It change after the second "hamburger menu breakpoint". Then I can see the menu items,
It is really strange, it will take some time to get a closer look-sorry
Yah! uploading to cc is cool.
Go to your CC icon in the menu bar.
then in your favourites on the left side will be a "CC cloud files" folder.
Drag the file there
back in the cc window click view archive
under the file is a dropdown menu - send link
"easy peasy"! ;-)

You have been running into a a Muse glitch.
But there is a workaround: Set the transition of the menu composition from "Fade" to "Horizontal" or "Vertical" in every breakpoint, and all will work fine.
I’ll report this issue in the Muse prerelease forum.
thank you Günter, Does this sometimes work (as in binder201701.businesscatalyst.com) and sometimes not?
I will try that.
Yes, it always helps to have a person with the "keys to the castle" involved.
Also great to have people like you offering up help as well...you just never do know where the solution will be found.
IN this case it is even not a solution but a workaround. Still strange that it works seamlessly on my side with my file and I couldn`t find a way to achieve it with your file with the same tools. Hm.
?? The way I suggested works fine on cuzimeasy's Muse document, or did I get you wrong?
Yes, it works on cuzimeasy's Muse document, but why does the same widget work in my site from binder without that I have to change the transition from fade to horizontal or vertical in every breakpoint. I chose a simple lightbox composition widget and I couldn´t get this to work in cuzimeasy's Muse document.
Your workaround, of course does work perfect (this horizontal appearance is something that does not disturb that much). And as fas as I know now, there`s a way to handle this issue – it is good to know.
Anyway I can accept this as part of the bug, that it sometimes works and sometimes it doesn´t.
You know the answer: ---> Dropbox or CC
I think, it is much too complicated to analyse this in depth. Your composition menu is built quite differently compared with the "original" version: One example, the original uses a manual menu, you are using states buttons. And: Do can’t know, what initiates the error. Could be a certain position of the close box, could be the kind of menu or whatever. I think, these inspections should be left for the engineers of the Muse team.
Thanks. This could be another correct answer, because I had the "original muse" error as well. If state buttons solve this, too, might be very interesting for the muse engineers. I couldn`t think of, that the kind of menu creates this issue.
Anyway, I do now have a workaround for "manual"/"automatic" menus as well.
I assume, you’ve already seen this thread.: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2304151
There you have exactly the same issues as cuzimeasy has.
And if you take the "composition/lightbox/hamburger" menu of cuzimeasy’s site and add some submenus, you’ll see exactly the same issue, which is described in the parallel thread:
I assume, that there really is created a "hickup situation", when combining composition lightboxes with menus.
Yes, I have seen this Responsive mobile menu box - submenu appears behind/faded as well, as I follow you for learning purposes (which I appreciate very much).
Is it better to use a state button widget for mobile menus then?
This horizontal and vertical appearance is not really bad, if only we cold have the menu appear horizontal not only from the rigth but also from the left (and from bottom to top?). Is there a way to make this happen as well with a composition? Like we can turn around an accordion as well? I gave it a try once but this "turning arrow" does not appear on widgets so I gave up with that.
Or is this something that should be done, if wanted, with an accordion, emptied and cleared of all stylings and contents?
Idea behind: I read recently, that it could be a better user experience to have the "one hand handling" be improved by putting the mobile menu at the bottom of mobile screens, as touching with thumbs is easier at the bottom than at the top, at least for huge mobiles.
No, menus unfortunately can’t be rotated. Use an composition instead, set transition to "vertical" and place your menu into it.
May be a mobile menu is more ergonomic, when placed at the bottom of the page. It seems to be easier to handle it as well, because you can place it into the footer, so that pinning is unnecessary.
The remaining question however is: Do users expect a navigation menu to be placed at the bottom of the page? Not really sure about this.
No...users do not expect navigation at the bottom of any page...only footer links
its okay to differentiate with design but do the "expected" when it comes to navigation...don't move the steering wheel to the right side of the car...unless you are in Germany!
… but we don’t have the steering wheel on the right side!
That's good to know...guess I can stop practicing for my trip
Hilarious, left right.
This " menu at the bottom" was just a reasonable question about handling. But the main question was, if I can make with "out of the box from muse" a mobile menu appearing on the left side and move horizontal from left to right. Some 3rd party widgets do this,
I try to avoid (3rd party) them as much as possible.
The answer so far is "no".
The only way would be to use an accordion turned counterclockwise (left) by90º but I read a lot about that accordions are not the best way to use for mobile menus.
For this so far it would be just nitpicking. This question is solved and the original as well – what more do we want.
Thanks cuzimeasy for the CC trick. Didn`t try it out so far (too lazy).
Maybe , HMMB , keep the stiring wheel centered? Pinned? There were some cars in Bahrain recently. Then you would also have your own track? But for a trip you are welcome all the time . As far as I assume Günter Heißenbüttel has enough horsepower.
I agree with you...I try as well to keep everything to a minimum...websites are moving in this direction anyway...have a great rest of the day or night.
THX, same to you.
