The Side Menu settings help you configure a navigation panel which pops up at the side of the sheet when you press the button (Figure 1).
Figure 1: Side Menu Example
You can add Elements to construct your side menu, choosing from Sheets, Text, Groups, Master Items and Lines. There's a set up wizard you can use to add and manage items in the side menu (Figure 2).

Note: We strongly recommend you use the wizard to create any items in Vizlib Sheet Menu.
Wizard and Elements
When you enable Side Menu with the toggle (Figure 3), you'll see the Menu Wizard button which opens the wizard. You'll also see a selection of Elements - you can choose from Sheet, Text, Group, Master Item and Line.

The Elements settings you display in Side Menu vary according to the element you are adding. If you need to add more than one, simply click the Add Element button. Side menu elements contain two sets of shared settings which are the same for each element type - Enable Tooltip and Visibility.
Enable Tooltip (Figure 4) settings are available for Sheet, Text and Group elements, and let you enter Tooltip Text, set a Font Color, Font Size, Font Style, Font Family, Background Color and Opacity.

Visibility settings can be used with all element types. You can set the element to Always Show or enable a Conditional Show, where you enter a conditional expression and display the element only when the condition is met (Figure 5).
