No Edit Icon in Property Manager

The interactive tutotial for CSS Menu Writer seems to state that if one places the cursor in the area of the menu then in the Property Inspector an icn is displayed to allow one to edit that menu.
However in DW CS4 Build 4117 I cannot see that icon and so have to go from the start again using the full process. Not efiecien tor effective. Is there an aletrnative means of launching Menu Writer for a menu already in a page - I certainly canot find one.
Please adivse
TIA

An unexpected solution....

Once the menu is in place on the page click on the Layer icon that will be somewhere near the menu block seen on the screen and the Properties comes up. Very nice. Just a misunderstood tutorial and not quite as slick as it could be.

Now if only the Dynamic menu properties supported Access / MS SQL and similar instead of complying with the PHP only policy I'd be much happier.

Go to Dreamweaver preferences, and then the Invisible elements section. Make sure the checkbox next to Scripts is checked. Save the preferences and next to your menu you should see the script tag. Click on this tag and the edit buttons should show up.

edit: It looks like you already figured out how to edit the menu. Good to see.
