How do I add the same menu to another page using the same cssmw file.

2 different questions.
1. How do I add the same menu to another page using the same cssmw file easly. I have been copying code from 1 page to the next with mixed results, but surely there must be an easier way?
2. When I edit a menu it creates another cssmw file in the CSSmenuWriter folder, ie cssmw0, cssmw1, cssmw2 etc. how can I just use 1 file for all pages?

Once a menu has been created you can copy and paste the include file and css file from an existing page to another page. Usually we recommend adding the menu to a Template or Theme and then just apply the template to any pages you want the menu on.

To just use one file you would have to copy and paste the include and css file associated with it.

Menu edit

Thanks for that, however it appears that if I want to edit the menu once placed, I need to edit it on every page, as I then get the multiple cssmw0,1,2 etc in the menuwriter folder after each edit.
What am i doing wrong?
Thanks

How are you editing the menu? You should be clicking the "edit" button from the properties floater and it shouldn't use a new file name when you do that.

ok

Good morning
Ok I got that. When I saved the template I was expecting that the edit would edit the template not default to new every time I opened the menuwriter. I never scrolled down to the saved version.
I also never expected not to have to overwrite the saved version every time i did an edit, I assumed I was creating a new one every time.. But now I got it.
Thanks
