I attach a screen image of what you should be seeing.

If you are unable to see the small icon (shown in the image) then make sure that you have enabled Dreamweaver to show Invisible Elements.

Dreamweaver Menu > View > Visual aids > Invisible elements - Make sure it's ticked.

Then click the little icon (if you can now see it) and you should be able to see the CSSMenuWriter 'Edit Buttons' in the Properties Panel.

I am having the exact same problem, but even with visual aids enabled, I still don't see the options to edit the menu once it's been created. It's inconsistent. On some sites, it works, and others it doesn't. Has anyone else encountered this issue yet?

Since it does work on some of your sites, then the issue could be the location of your CSSMenuWriter folder. If the CSSMenuWrirter folder is located in a sub folder, then it might not work as well. Make sure the CSS Menu Writer folder is at the root of your site.

This is very strange. When I create a menu in a page that is saved with an .htm or .html extension, it produces the following, and then I can't edit it:

<ul class="level-0" id="cssmw3">
<li><a href="#">Item 1</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Item 2</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Item 3</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Item 4</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Item 5</a></li>
</ul>
<script type="text/javascript">if(window.attachEvent) { window.attachEvent("onload", function() { cssmw3.intializeMenu('cssmw3',{select_current: 0, orientation: 1}); }); } else if(window.addEventListener) { window.addEventListener("load", function() { cssmw3.intializeMenu('cssmw3',{select_current: 0, orientation: 1}); }, true); }</script>


When I insert the menu into a page that is saved with a .php extension, it produces the following, and then I CAN edit it:

<?php require_once("CSSMenuWriter/cssmw4/menu.php"); ?>

It seems that it doesn't like .htm or .html pages for some reason. This would be okay, but I don't always have PHP pages in my site. Some sites are static HTML pages only.

Yes, my CSS Menu Item files ARE in the correct folder in my root directory.

For the html menus, try clicking on the following line of code:

<script type="text/javascript">if(window.attachEvent) { window.attachEvent("onload", function() { cssmw3.intializeMenu('cssmw3',{select_current: 0, orientation: 1}); }); } else if(window.addEventListener) { window.addEventListener("load", function() { cssmw3.intializeMenu('cssmw3',{select_current: 0, orientation: 1}); }, true); }</script>


and see if you are able to edit the menu. If that is the case then in your Dreamweaver Preference panel, click on Invisible Elements and make sure you have the scripts check box checked.
