Known Issues & Limitations
R2.0.45.2013

Known Issues:

  • "Add new" menu tab button may appear occasionally when the page is not in edit mode (Please clear your browser cache [Ctrl + F5]).
  • "Resend Information" or “Leave this page” message prompt appears when trying to add a second menu tab using the “Add New” button.
  • The Web Part settings tool pane Text Editor function is not compatible with Chrome and Firefox browsers.
  • The Drag & Drop Menu Editor is not compatible with Safari browsers.

Limitations:

  • Mega menu content may be hidden if sub-menus open above the tab strip.
  • Mega menu content may be hidden if the container width exceeds a certain limit (e.g. 1400px; depending on the screen size).
  • Styles & Color for menu items created from the Navigators list view are not customizable using the Drag & Drop Menu Editor.
  • The sub-menu container may not fit the width of the tab strip after resizing the web part zone.
  • After migrating, if an icon's URL value contained an absolute path, the web part tool pane may not be accessible (Workaround: Modify the URL structure from the Navigators List view to access the tool pane).
  • Custom styles do not migrate to SharePoint 2013. (Workaround: Move the custom style sheet file from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013 manually. E.g. Move "...TabStrip\Skins\CustomSkin\style.css" from SharePoint 2010 to "TabStrip\Skins\CustomSkin\TabStrip.CustomSkin.css" in SharePoint 2013).
  • Border Radius and Box Shadow properties are not supported on Internet Explorer 8.
R1.5.74.2013

Known Issues:

  • None.

Limitations:

  • The Navigator menu does not show the menus in sort order if one of the items is blank for "Sort Order" field. This is working as designed.
  • For TabStrip menu, the text does not wrap when TabStrip has Size = 50 pixels or when the TabStrip menu's orientation is in the horizontal position. This is working as designed.
  • For Migration: Cannot edit the tool pane if the icon URL's value is using the absolute path. The workaround is for the end user to manually modify the URL for the items in the list.
  • For Migration: Custom style does not take effect when migrating to SharePoint 2013. The workaround is to move the information that defines the custom style from the SP2010 style.css file to the SharePoint 2013 xxx.CustomSkin.css file where xxx = TabStrip, Menu...etc. (Navigators for SP2010 and SP2013 have many differences in defining the class name in the css file as well as the name of the css file. For example: In SP2010, we are using "..TabStrip\Skins\CustomSkin\style.css", but in SP2013 we are using "..TabStrip\Skins\CustomSkin\TabStrip.CustomSkin.css".).
  • For Migration: When using the Navigators Tree Menu, the “Inherit from site theme” option does not take effect if there are more than 32 Navigators Web Part on the same page. This is a limitation of Internet Explorer that imposes a maximum limit of 32 individual stylesheet (The reason is that there is a limit on the number of stylesheets per page for IE8, and IE9. When user adds many Navigator Web Parts into the page, Navigators will register many stylesheets into that page. And if the number of the stylesheets is 32 then the CSS for Navigator Web Parts does not take effect.).
R1.3.57.2013

  • None.

Limitations:
