Hi,

 

Is Insert>Form>Jump Menu no longer available in DW 2021? I haven't had need of it for quite a long time but I do now and I don't see it available in either the Insert menu or Insert panel. Is it called something else now and I'm just missing it? 

 

Thanks,

David

yes apparently, you still have this feature present,

for that you need to create a select item from the Form menu,

once inserted, select it and then from the menu window > behavior you will find on the + submenu and item for menu (in french it's called rerouting menu)

you can set URL and target for each select option items

does this is what you was looking for ?

Jump Menu, YIKES! 

Maybe what you really want is a <form> Select element with a drop-list of options like this example?

Thanks Nancy. That's what I currently have, but I want each option to go to a specified URL when selected.

Thank you SO much! And for anyone who is interested, in the English version when you click the + button in the Behaviors panel, the option for Jump Menu is in there. This is what I used.

 

Thanks again,
David

Be sure to test your Jump Menus and other navigation from multiple mobile devices to ensure they are touch-friendly for adult fingers. See screenshot of an ideal link target area.
