Hamburger Menu & more
Hey guys, I had read somewhere on here that you guys said you were making a mobile menu or hamburger menu for users back in on Dec 21, 2014. Did that happen yet? I personally would need that ability an option to consider using the platform for my clients. Here's some issues that I've noticed and feel need to be addressed.
For one, it seems like the way you design has to be in order and isn't seeming freeform. In other words, if I don't put a menu down first, and put a block down first that block will always be in front of the menu. And when you click move to the front nothing happens. I've also noticed blocks or shapes when moved will randomly put another object to the back out of no where. I don't know if these are bugs or if this is how the system is set up. But I would need a way to freely move anything i take into the editor forward or backwards regardless of what order I decided to put it in the site.
Second thing is, the way menus are done I'm just not liking the UI. It should be more simplifed, when we scale the menu up the text should scale too. Think the menu system could be so much better if it was expanded upon. Hamburger style drop down menu would also be a must have for me.
Second thing is, making the editor faster and more zippy. Things can get really slow, and seems like the history recording may be slowing things down. I can't be sure.
Actions, states, behaviors and animations are something I feel we need here. The ability to make something shake, or rotate when a mouse hovers over it, the ability to have something fly in or fly out. Having this plus the parallax animation feature would seal the deal.
We need buttons, the ability to make various shapes in the editor. We should not have to enter a number for a shadow. It should be an intutive interface slider to make place shadows how we want them.
I was coming close to fully adopting your platform, but it needs A LOT of work. If you guys put the work in, you can have the best builder around. It's all a matter of will you take it there. The interface just isn't intutive enough. It begins to feel daunting when designing on it. At first glace you think wow this is amazing, and then when you start to design you just become angry at the weakness of the UI and the very stripped down features. You guys have some great aspects and are on the verge of being the best, but there's still a lot of work to do here.
We are very happy to let you know that you can now add a custom menu suited for mobile devices.
This is what you can do:
Changing position, size, fill, stroke and shadow of the menu button.
Replacing the “Hamburger” icon with any other icon you wish.
Applying different attributes to the menu items.
Setting where the menu will appear when the icon is clicked.
To Work It:
Drag and drop the menu element to your canvas, and choose the “Mobile Menu” mode.
We’ll be happy to hear what you think of it, by commenting to this post.
It's been almost 2 months since the original post. Has this been implemented yet? If so, or either way – can you update us here? Thanks :)
Keen to know when this goes live too please. Thanks.
