Reentering the Wizard

Reentering the Wizard

Hi all,

I feel a little dumb here, but I am just beginning to use (learn) Menu Writer 2. I am on Page 2 of 10 of the CSS Menu Writer v2 Getting Started Guide. The document shows a graphic of a properties tab for CSS Menu Writer. I have attached a screen shot of the page to this message.

I click once on the menu which is located in a Dreamweaver Template file, but I do not see a tab with properties for CSS Menu Writer. I am probably doing something wrong or missing something simple, yet I am perplexed.

I need to edit the menu, and make several changes, but I cannot seem to be able to reenter the wizard.

Thanks, in advance, for any assistance you can provide.

Regards,

John

Still No Luck

Hi all and Jason,

Thanks for your prompt reply. I have no problem accessing the properties window; however, in the window I see no reference to CSS Menu Writer or the three buttons: Edit Menu, Edit Contents, or Edit Theme as illustrated at the bottom of Page 2 of 10 of the CSS Menu Writer v2 Getting Started document. I am using Dreamweaver CS5. Could it be that the "Getting Started" document is based on CS4, and that CS5 is different? Just guessing.....

Best regards,
John

Go to Edit -> Preferences, select the invisible elements option.

then go to View -> Visual Aids and make sure Invisible element is checked.

you should now see a small script symbol next to the menu in design view, click the script symbol to trigger the menu edit option in the properties window.

Still No Luck

Hi Jason,

Thank you for your suggestions. I followed your instructions; however, I still cannot see how to reenter the wizard, and the process has raised more questions:

(1) Inside DW CS5 I clicked on Edit|Preferences|Invisible Elements. I have attached a screen shot of the screen to this message. Once I get to this screen, then what do I do?

(2) Near the bottom of the screen is a check box for CSS Display: none. I have tried both checking this box and unchecking the box; but still no success. When I check this box, a small icon appears DW CS5 just below my menu items. I'm not sure if this is the script symbol you referred to. I have clicked on this icon, and still no reference to Menu Writer in the Properties window.

(3) I have gone to View|Visual Aids in DW, and the Invisible Elements is checked.

(4) Could it be that my installation of DW CS5 or Menu Writer are corrupted? Do you think I need to reinstall my software? I'm very sorry, Jason, but I am still perplexed as to why I cannot seem to reenter the wizard.

Thanks, again, for your assistance and patience.

Best regards,
John

In the preferences, on the invisible elements section, check the Scripts option ans click ok.

you should now see a script symbol next to the menu in design view. Click the Script to toggle the menu editing options in the property inspector.
