Softpedia Editor's Review for 123 Flash Menu
Create Flash menu as easy as 123
Written by Elena Opris on January 31st, 2012
123 Flash Menu is an application that lets you easily create menus in Flash, so you can use them in your websites.
Once you initiate the application with the user-friendly interface, you can get started by applying a template from various categories (e.g. “Art”, “Business”, “Classic”, “Modern”).
So, you can add or delete a menu item, move it up or down, as well as expand or collapse all menu items, in the "Menu Item Property".
In addition, you can change header properties when it comes to the font name, color, size and attributes, as well as image.
On the right side of the screen, you can check out "Menu Properties" and change values for the item width and height, as well as item spacing, font, size, color and attributes.
But you can also set a new position, use a hot font color, enable sound effects, change colors for the Flash background and web page background, and more.
Once you are satisfied with the results, you can save them as a template or 123 Flash Menu project, as well as publish them.
The program uses a moderate-to-high amount of system resources and has a well-written user documentation with snapshots. However, the Flash templates are not accurately displayed at times (and you have to reload the image).
Also, there are no advanced settings you can configure and you cannot create a project from scratch (so, you are stuck with the same templates that everybody has). Nevertheless, 123 Flash Menu is very easy to use and we recommend it mainly to novices.
