How can you change the size and/or style of the menu items?

I went everywhere to try and find an answer to this question, and the only one I found was here and that told me that what I wanted was impossible. The only impossible thing though was trying to read my menu text.

After experimentation I found that you CAN change it, and here's how.
1) go to the "page" tab at the top of your screen (on any of your pages) and click "edit menu".
this should bring up a very unhelpful menu that has the labels of your pages and what text you want displayed as their names (you can edit when you click "settings")

2) if you haven't already, click "settings"

3) add html code for the desired style in front of the text you want DISPLAYED. It won't work if you put it in the hover text.
you can google different html code (ex: "html bold text") to alter the menu as you need.

4) make sure to end your font with "/font" inside of wickets () so that the tiny text (from synthasite) at the bottom of your page isn't changed in the same way.

5)press ok.
it should refresh the page with the new menu. Adjust it as needed!

You can make each entry in the menu different if you start and end a new font in the same box.

Hello Marcela,
Can you show me the code you are using to make the menu button and I will take a look at it. If the code is broken the suggestion that Cat gave won't work. Let me know and I will try to assist further!

Kind Regards,
Emmy
