Creating a Preset Without CSS Menu Writer

I am trying to import a site that I have created and saved in a Dreamweaver Template. The template has a simple text links menu that I would like to keep. Is it possible to keep this menu and create a preset using Preset Manager and not use Menu Writer? It seems that unless this is possible that you can only create sites using a drop down nav menu in Site Sculptor. Not everyone wants this style of menu and the site I am making only has a few links so this type of menu is not needed

If all you are looking for a single level horizontal navigation (like the one at you should be able to achieve a simple version of that without using CSS Menu Writer to create the preset first.

The default menus that are available in Site Sculptor use a semi-transparent image that creates a gradient effect. Then, in the CSS a color is applied that makes it easy for you to switch to any color you want from within Theme-it. However, let's say you didn't want the gradient, you can go to the Manage Images tab of Theme-It and remove that image. Leaving a simple navigation with just text and a color.

Now, if you don't want the dropdowns for the additional levels, you can select the "Do not include this page in the navigation" checkbox for any pages that are subs of the top level.
