Main Menu Position = Right - but not in output

Postby Cecily on Tue Feb 12, 2019 9:32 am

In my skin, I've set the Main Menu Position to be Right, and the illustrated example on the dialog shows roughly what that should look like. (If I change it to Top or Left, the example changes accordingly.)

But in the HTML5 output, the menu is resolutely at the top. I guess it's being overridden somewhere, but I'm not sure where. Any ideas welcome.

I'm using Flare 2018 v2 on Windows 10 PC, with PDF and HTML5 outputs.

In the image on the right, you're looking at the Tablet/Mobile view. The Pane position sets the menu position in those views - i.e. the position of the menu when you click the hamburger icon (in the top right in the image).

The Main Menu Position sets the menu position on the desktop view (at larger screen sizes); so if you increase your browser size, then you should see the side navigation menu on the right.

It's hard to tell what's in your screenshot, but if you're referring to the position of that grey menu, then I think that's the menu proxy. If it is the menu proxy, then that menu isn't controlled by the skin, it's in your master page.

:idea: Aha! Thanks for that, Dave.

Yes, I see what's going on now. If I widen my browser window, the hamburger is replaced with the menu on the right, so I don't even need the proxy at the top, that is in the master page.
