Drop menus from drop menus?

Drop menus from drop menus?

Drop menus from drop menus?

Hey everyone :)

Just a quick question. My art director and I were discussing this earlier and neither of us knew how to do it, but I'd like to build a site's navigation around dropdown menus with further dropdowns off the main ones. (Does that make sense?) To illustrate, I'm looking for something along the lines of www.honda.com's leftbar navigation. In that example, the Automobiles > Acura > RL path has dropdowns off a dropdown.

We know how to make a single dropdown in Fireworks, but how would dropdowns off a dropdown be done? I can't seem to find any further options apart from making a single one.

Any help would be great, thanks!

whos that behind you?

RE: Drop menus from drop menus?

Actually, you're wrong. :) Someone from the Macromedia forums mailed me a few minutes before I read yours, and they pointed me to a tutorial in Fireworks 4 regarding popup menus. It turns out wen you use the Popup Wizard, there's an option to "Indent" any list item as many times as you want. Any indented item then becomes a submenu in the prior popup, and you can do that as many times as you want to end up with tons of menus inside menus. And that's exactly what I was looking to do. Neat, eh? :)
