I'm using the standard Muse horizontal menu widget but I'm struggling to work out the following:
You should use the menu in manual mode, I´m afraid, instead of automatic.
Then you can align your items as you like.
Great thanks! How do I change to manual mode? Will it effect anything else?
@Kim Louise 22 When talking about menu styling, it is absolutely essential to know, what parts a menu is consisting of.
To know this, please have a look at the top left corner of Muse’s application window. There you find a label, which identifies the active element, With regard to a menu and its submenus you’ll see this:
Clicking onto the menu, the label says „Menu“. One more click click leads to Menu Item, double click onto the text within shows: Label.
You can see the same, when you have a close look into the „Layers“ panel:
If you click onto the submenu container, after every click you’ll see Submenu -> Menu Item –> Label
Why is that so important? Simply because you can customise every single element (even the wording, if you have a manual menu):
You can underline the text, outline and/or colorise every element in every state. And you can resize and reposition every menu part by selecting the part and dragging the handles or by using the „Transform“ panel. Further you can modify the distances of every part by using the „Spacing“ panel.
Here a little video, demonstrating, how flexible a standard menu can be handled (and this is not even a „manual“ menu, which would allow even much deeper customisations!)
Looks quite silly, bit gives an impression, what is possible:
