I need to change the color of the text in my dropdown menu when it's hovered over. I went into Drop Down Settings for the menu but I only see the option to change the color of the menu or the text, nothing for rollover.

Unfortunately, there are no rollover settings for the dropdown at this time.

Not having  the option to add a link roll over color change is a big mistake... I can't understand why that wouldn't be an option. Not that everyone needs it but it would be helpful, as well as having the option to remove the underline but instead to have it highlight on mouse over.

I understand. We have requested these things, but I do not know the status at this time

You know, I think you can change the text color, as well as the hover state of the whole button.

Click the dropdown menu to highlight it.
The "Pages menu" pops up
Click "Style"
On top there are two options "Button" and "Pages Menu"
Click "Button"
At the bottom of the box you will see "EDIT OTHER STATES" where there are 3 choices.
"Selected" "Rollover" "Pressed"
Click "Rollover"
This is where you can change the color of the roll over state of text, border and background. After you finish you can click apply to save changers or cancel to return to the Style menu where you can try again. Don't like what you changed, just go through the steps again to change it.

Yeah, it worked for me, now I'm having an unrelated different issue.

I want to have a background image on the site but corners only.  Left top and bottom right. I tried as a back ground and that was OK but if I put it on the header, it gets cut off. When in the sections area, it doesn't go through to the top of the header.

So I tried just images on the sections hard allied to corner and corner. Works good but when I bring it into mobile, it's all in sections and I can't figure out how to make it act like a back ground image... Not sure if there's a way I doing this I haven't found yet... Here is the mobile image, so you see what I mean. I want to make the stars smaller and the CAT on top......

Alright, found a so so solution.

HIDING STUFF IN MOBILE (Version)
You can hide something just in the mobile version... There is a little eye that hides it only in mobile, it's on the right and it looks like a little eye. So I did and then took the same image and used it as the background on the text box with the lettering CAT.

When the advanced menu comes up, go to Style and enable "Mobile Custom Style" with the little slider. There you have a whole bunch of options, including background image. You can disable "Mobile Custom Style" again by clicking the slider on the top of next to the Mobile Custom Style [?]

Also, you can find all you have hidden in the menu on the far left in settings. There you will find a section called "HIDDEN ELEMENTS" - Click the eye of the thing you want back and bobs your uncle.

I must say, the designers did some really smart and cool things with this new builder. The more I learn, the more I'm liking it. Even when something doesn't do what I want, so far I've been able to find a temp work around. It's a credit to their work.
