    Thumbs up The Ultimate Xara Menu Maker...

    ... is YOU.

    This presentation is a small starter pack for you to better exploit the Xara Desktop applications that will handle the NavBar design without any backward compatibility issues. [Provided you are not using later version features]

    The Ultimate Xara Menu Maker is YOU.xar

    Preview the presentation here - http://acorn.xara.hosting/NavBars/.

    I have designed this as the Xara NavBars fail to provide any real flexibility over Fonts and Sub-Menu settings.

    There is no limit. You could use images entirely as your menu; you can arrange it anyhow you like.
    Everything can be done in just the MouseOff/Over layers to provide simple rollover animations.

    Over to YOU.

    For those who are interested the following Website Body (code) update, stops the inner sub-menu items from flickering as they are now not being closed and opened:
    Code:
    <script>
    var collectionClassName = '.Menu';
    
    
    function open(chain) {
      chain = chain.replace(/\s/g,'');
      var links = chain.split(',');
      var linkage = links.length - 1;
    
    
      $(collectionClassName).not(chain).hide('fast');
      
      $(links[linkage]).slideDown("slow");
      return;
    }
    
    
    $(collectionClassName).hide();
    </script>
