A submenu always looks as if it is coming from inside or close to the main menu (parent) item. However, you can choose to have the animation look as if the menu is moving away horizontally or vertically. Several factors, including the number of submenu items and the objects on the page can help to determine which orientation is preferred. It is always good to experiment with this feature to find the best option. Be sure to click the “Apply” button to save changes.
