After using WebAssist’s Menu Writer for a couple months now, I’ve learned through practice that the program likes to get hung up on itself from time to time.
It doesn’t ever seem to recover. 🙁
Since the program has no save button, you have only one choice to end a hang.
Close the program and lose your work. 🙁
However, if you want to curb your work practices to fit with the tool, there is a goal that you can shoot for when using this prima donna software program.
Race through your menu creation and hit the finish button. Once you finish you can not edit the menu again (that will screw things up seriously, even though they make it appear that you can edit menus through the program, you have to go into the menu.php file generated by the program and edit menus the old fashioned way in html and css).
Tip for Tempermental Tool!
You can however, save your current menu as a new preset, just before you hit the finish button.
Then you can delete that actual menu file set that is generated, and start what menu writer will believe to be a new menu, choose your newly saved preset, and pick up the pieces of work where you left off.
Repeat this as often as it takes to get your menu right.
Its a pain in the whazzoo, but until they come up with a more stable version, a save button, or an option to edit menus from the program, I think this is your only choice.
