Sub Menu Cascade left?

First, wonderful system. Beats Heirmenus hands-down. Well done.

Second, we are implementing your system with a horizontal layout,
right justified (see for an the site).
We have two issues which we cannot seem to resolve.

1.) How do we get the sub-menus to slide out to the left instead of
to the right? The "Right to Left" attribute works well for the position
of the initial menu, but all subsequent menus still roll to the right.

2.) The menu seems to pad itself from the edge of the browser. If you
open the page listed above and reduce the size of your browser window
to the exact size of the page (or set your screen resolution to 800 x
600) the menu the the far right is offset to the left by 20-30 pixels. In if
the edge of the browser is not close however (such as in a maximized
window 1024 x 768 or greater) the positioning is correct.

How do we turn off this padding?

Again, great product.

Dave or anyone,

Did you find a way to make the sub menus cascade to the right regardless of the position on the screen? I have a menu that I want on the right side of the page with sub menus cascading in to the left. If the browser window is small enougth (800 x 600) the sub menus will be forced to the left, but if the window is bigger they will go to the right because there is room for them.

You seem to have some significant errors on your page let alone the menu. The site is extremely slow in my testing, not sure why off hand. The menu I see pops up several image not found indicators on mouseover, I think you are missing references.
As to your questions, if you set the right to left in all the menu property arrays it should do what you want. Keep in mind that if a menu is going to hit the side of the screen it will pop up on the other side. This is so a menu never displays off screen by accident, thereby always giving full options.
As to padding on screen, IE will for example do this because of how the browser works, there is nothing we can do about that I'm afraid. If you set the alignment to top left and set no pixel coordinates it should be in the best spot possible. Another option is the glue in a table ability. I have looked at your site and see your menu is postioned in the middle of the page, so your question confuses me. I have resized the window and the menu does not move, so off hand I see no indication of the second problem you mention.

If you provide more information we may be able to assist further. I do not have a list of clients with support contracts, so I don't know if you have purchased one. I don't see a reference back to us on your site, but keep in mind without a contract there may be a limit to the support we can offer.
