    Default NavBar edit and colors

    Hello all.

    Well I figured out how to export to raw html.

    Now I'm creating a nav bar and can't find a way to change colors or maintain any consistency.

    I chose a red colored vertical button bar from the design gallery.
    I found a way to change the mouse-over color to blue but now I can't get it to change to anything else AND I can't change the mouse-off color from red to anything else.

    I really hate non-intuitive applications.

    Ugh.

    Anybody know how to do this?

    Thanks again for your time.

    The Xara Desktop application is not there to generate standalone JS/CSS code.

    If you are familiar with raw html, why are you not using an online CSS menu generator instead?

    Acorn - My currently active Xara software: XDPX (current, v15, v12 & 11 (64-bit)), unserviced XWD Premium 15 & 12, XPGD10, X3D7; lots of licences back through time (to CC's Artworks). If your Post identifies a Xara software fault, please raise it directly with Magix --> support2.magix.com.

    I actually didn't know such a thing existed.
    I've been out of the hack web design thing for a few years now and my old boss wanted me to update his site.
    I used webstyle to pretty easily design the menus back then and had purchased Web Designer Premium before I quit, so it was a logical place to start.

    It will actuall export all the files and the .js file for a standalone menu in an html document, I just can't get it to make the buttons that I want, yet, and it seems like it should be able to.

    I will check out your suggestion however, unless I get some insight quickly on how to make this app work the way I think it should.

    Thank you for your insight.

    As far as editing navbars within the Xara app, I suggest you read the 'Navigation Bars' chapter in the Help file.

    WHOA!

    I NEVER would have thought to do that!!!

    Since I obviously missed something the first TEN times I read that, perhaps you could point me to the part that addresses my questions specifically.

    My suggestion appears to be as non-intuitive as the app itself. Sorry about that!
