 Menu Manager Move Menu Item Screenshot
Move Menu Item


This option moves a Menu Item, or multiple Menu Items, from one Menu to another. The Menu Item will be displayed in the Menu Manager - Menu Item list of the new host Menu. It will be listed with the same name. This can be edited after the move is completed. The Menu Item will retain its original ItemID.

Any sub-menus that are attached to the Menu Item will be transferred at the same time, and will retain their hierarchical structure.



Move: Click the Move icon, after the target Menu has been selected from the drop down list of existing Menus, to complete the transfer of the Menu Item.

Cancel: Clicking Cancel at any point ends the current move session and returns the display to the "donor" Menu Manager [ menuname ] screen. The Move session will be completely lost and must be restarted - if needed.

Help: Click the Help icon at any time to view this Help Screen.


Move to Menu: Choose the Menu, to which the selected Menu Item(s) are to be moved, by clicking on the name in the displayed list of all Menus.

Menu Items being moved: This is a simple non-editable list of the Menu Item(s) that have been selected in the Menu Manager to be moved. Click the Move icon to complete the move session and return to the Menu Manager [ menuname ]
