    Center Popup Menus

    Level 7
      Greetings,

      I'm using a CSS to center a page (and I tried <!--center--> previously)
      but the fireworks dropdownmenu/popupmenu function
      pops the menu to the left edge rather than where it
      appears when I don't use the centering 'strategies'.

      I also tried Snap Layers by PVII (it allows you to assign datum points),
      but that didn't work either.

      Any idea on how to allow the FW popupmenus to follow page centering
      strategies?

      Regards,
      Toe Cutter

          Which FW?

          > and I tried <!--center--> previously

          But that's just a poorly-formed HTML comment with the word "center" in it.
          It's not a legitimate HTML tag that would actually do anything.

          I don't recommend the use of the FW popup menus at all. Even in their best
          form (FW8-version), they are lousy. There are much better ways to do menus,
          and these ways will allow you to center easily....

          Check the uberlink and MacFly tutorials at PVII -
          http://www.projectseven.com/

          and the Navbar tutorial/articles at Thierry's place
          http://tjkdesign.com/articles/dropdown/

          Or this one (more recent article):
