Menu lacks a scrollbar

Can anyone advise whether a menu created (from the menu creator) can have a scrollbar attached to the pages? - basically any subpages at the bottom of a verticle menu disappear off the bottom of the page. Also seems like it's only ever set up for sub pages to appear on the right? It's almost a great item but lacks these basic features (unless I'm wrong?). Or if anyone can point me to a great example of a TOC being dramactially changed with CSS I'd appreciate it, all I can find are dead links.

    If you preview in browser does the scrollbar show up? (from the properties in the "Included Pages" section, you could also just show the chapters/sections vs all the individual pages if that helps).

    @msaunders3127 If we lived in the Star Trek universe, I would blame the broken links on a transporter incident, causing links from the former Trivantis community to lose pixels during matter-energy conversion. In the eLearning Brothers universe, if you let me know which ones you're trying to access, we may be able to reconstruct them.

    Thanks @cainam but we need to be able to get to the pages, so they have to be seen. It's annoying because it would perfectly solve a issue if there was a scroll bar like a TOC? Not sure why a TOC can have it but a menu can't?

    @chris_willis can you try this one please, the link at the bottom of the comment goes no where https://rockstars.elearningbrothers.com/discussion/296263/table-of-contents-css-classes

    As a side note and another issue - to try to get around the problem is I created a fake menu that uses buttons triggering multiple table of contents, whilst it works in internet explorer fine, when I try other browsers the TOCs do not show up? Any ideas?

    Thanks @chris_willis - if you can add it to your list of Lectora improvments, could you add a scrollbar and left/right menu arragement? I've noticed it mentioned in old forum posts so I'm sure it'd help people?

    Please add that to the suggestion list here in Rockstars Community. That way, others can recommend enhancements and workarounds--and our Product and Engineering team read and carefully consider every suggestion.

    my bad @msaunders3127 - I was thinking you were talking about a TOC (Either I've use the Menu so rarely I forgot about it, or just went off your last sentence when making reference to the TOC). So you are using the Menu like you would a TOC for the visual appeal over a TOC? And you wouldn't use a regular Drop-down List for the same reason? (lack of visual appeal?)

    No worries @cainam - basically (due to a MD's insistance) we went away from a TOC as the navigation and created a menu that had section thumbnails, when each thumbnail is clicked, that then had the TOC pages under that section - basically 12 buttons trigger 12 TOCs - messy but it worked.

    He's gone now as so we're having a bit of a clean up, I'd overlooked the menu for ages and whilst it is handy and graphically already more adaptable than a TOC, not having a scroll bar in there seem like a missing essential. Upvote it in my request if you like!! ;)
