Creating a drop-down (pop-up) menu in Fireworks
First, create a new canvas depending on the shape you want your menu-bar to be (I did a horizontal one).
– Select the “text” tool & type out the options you want to appear on the main menu (i.e. – “locations”, “about”, “menu”).
Then you want to make sure the hotspot (or slice) is selected before clicking “modify”–>”pop-up menu”–> “add pop-up menu” :
…Once you’ve added each of the items to your drop-down menu, you can also add sub-menus to the drop-down by clicking the small, blue square-button (the one to the far-right in comparison to the “+” and “-” ) .
Once you’ve inserted your text (and links, which I didn’t have because there was no menu to link to), you can also adjust other elements of the menu through the other tabs in the “Pop-up Menu Editor”:
Finally, I think it’s always really useful to “Preview in Browser” so you can see what it would look like once it’s live on your website!
TA – DA!
