Then you can set the height of your menu, modify the background color as well as the color of the icons.

💡 You can change the height of the menu by using the slider in the design panel, or by resizing it with your mouse.

If you want, you can customize the shading by clicking on "Shadow". Then all you have to do is set the color, spacing and blur intensity.

Regarding the display style, you have the choice between two solutions:

  1. Display the menu on the full height of the screen (default mode)

  2. Display the menu according to the height of the content.

Regarding the colors, you can change the background of your menu, but also the color of the text displayed.example responsive website
