Inserting jump menus

Jump menus let you associate URLs with options in a pop-up menu list. By choosing an item from the list, the user is redirected (or "jumps") to the specified URL. Jump menus are inserted within the Jump Menu form object.

To insert a jump menu:

  1. Open a document, and then place the insertion point in the Document window.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Select Insert > Form > Jump Menu.
    • In the Form category of the Insert bar, click the Jump Menu button.

      The Insert Jump Menu dialog box appears.

  3. Complete the dialog box.

    For more information, see Setting Insert Jump Menu options.

  4. Click OK.

    The jump menu appears in your document.

Editing jump menu items

To edit jump menu items, you can change the list order or the file an item links to, or you can add, delete, or rename an item.

To change the location in which a linked file opens, or to add or change a menu selection prompt, you must use the Behaviors panel (see Jump Menu).

To edit a jump menu item using the Property inspector:

  1. Select Window > Properties to open the Property inspector, if it isn’t open.
  2. In the Document window’s Design view, click the jump menu object to select it.

    The List/Menu icon appears in the Property inspector.

  3. In the Property inspector, click the List Values button.

    The List Values dialog box appears.

    This is a picture of the feature being described.

  4. Make changes to the menu items as necessary, and then click OK.

Troubleshooting jump menus

After a user selects a jump menu item, there is no way to reselect that menu item if the user navigates back to that page, or if the Open URL In text box specifies a frame. There are two ways to work around this problem:

  • Use a menu selection prompt, such as a category, or a user instruction, such as "Choose one:". The menu selection prompt is reselected automatically after each menu selection.
  • Use a Go button, which allows a user to revisit the currently chosen link.
