arrows för items with submenu

Hello!
I bought CSS design sutie last week and testing the Menu Wrighter.

I realy do like the product but so far i got 3 qustions.

1. I can not get any down and right arrows for Items that have submenus.
Have I missed something or installed something wrong?

2. Is it possible to edit with of a single menu item box in the main if the
item text is longer than all other ( I can onely get all boxes the same length )
3 Is it possible to configure bakground color or image for just one single
menu item/box in a level or is the configuration onely for all items in a menu level.

Thanks in advance

Only the Dell and Simple menu design typers include arrows.

the arrows will be added to all menu levels, not just the ones that include sub menus.

you can edit the css and the menu so that only the ones that have submenus include the arrow.

in the menu.css file, look all instances of the following line:
background-image: url("../cssmw0_images/arrow.gif");


and comment it out;
/*background-image: url("../cssmw0_images/arrow.gif");*/


then in the menu, add an inline style to the menu items that you want to include the arrow on, for example:
<li class="parent"><a href="Products.php" style="background-image: url('plugins/CSSMenuWriter/cssmw0_images/arrow.gif'););">Products</a>


use the same technique for assigning individual background color or width: Add an inline style to the menu item:
<li class="parent"><a href="Products.php" style="width:180px; background-color:#C3C3C3;">Products</a>

Thanks för a quick reply and i belive the solution will work,
but a pity that some should be configured in the menus and some through code.

Many Thanks for Your help!

Positioning the cursor in design view should should trigger the menu edit options.

Seer the "Reenter the wizard" section of the Menu Writer getting started guide for more details:
