Site Sculptor preset

Can i change the color of a nav menu when i am setting up a preset in site sculptor? Because i couldnt figure out how to change the color of the nav main top level menu in CSS menu writer since they are pictures..

Im trying to get my menu to look similar to or close enough to a template i want to add to site sculptor preset

thanks!

No, you need to configure the menu preset before adding the menu to site sculptor.

In menu writer, create a menu design preset that uses the colors you wish to use in site sculptor, save the preset, then you can select that preset for use when creating the site sculptor design.

Ok thanks,
Let me ask you this though, am i able to change the color of the preset for the ones that seem to use images for the menu's? I could not figure out how to do that?

for the menu themes that use background images, the colors are part of the image. to change the colors beyond the presets that are available, you would need to create your own images t ouse in the menu. The colors aren't controlled through CSS in the menu designs that use images, but through the images themselves.

yeah that's what i had figured, just like in Dreamweaver.

So i could make a totally custom menu in Photoshop and "import the menu via the picture of the menu through the filename browse folder in css menu writer"
?

No, you cannot import a menu created in photo shop into menu writer.

you can use photo shop to create image slices for the menu pieces.

Look at it this way:

if you create a menu that has 4 top level items:
Home | Products | About | Support

and you set each of these top level menu items to be 200px wide x 40px high. you would create an image that is 2px wide x 40px high that is used as the background for each of the top level menu items.

In the images, use the colors you would like for your menu. in menu writer add that iamge as the background for the top level on the a tag, and set the repeat to repeat-x that will repeat the 2px wide image across the entire width of the a tag.
