Editing a Disc Menu

To edit the actions assigned to the menu’s buttons,you can use the authoring tools provided on the timeline in conjunction with the Player, or you can get some automated help from the Chapter Wizard tool just next to menu in Menu List.

To modify the appearance of a menu (or create one from scratch) you can use the Menu Editor in two ways:

1. Click the Edit button on the Player while previewing the menu

2. Double-click the menu in the Menu List.

For a complete description of all Menu Editor functionality, see the user manual by clicking the Help Button (?) and selecting User Manual. In the manual browse to Chapter 9 – Disc projects.
