This is one of those programs that is a sheer joy to use mainly because of the ease of use and stunning results it produces. Coding and producing either Java or Flash menus/navigation by hand is a time consuming process requiring Java or Flash skills. 1 Cool Menu FX Tool de-mystifies all that and makes those tasks easy and slick without the need for any Java or Flash programming knowledge.

You can create animated buttons, expandable menus, floating navigation and other interactive Flash files and Java applets. You can even use any True-type font in your menu. The user interface is clear and simple to use and a novice will have professional menus up and running very quickly. Features include : Amazing template system, create menus in both Flash or Java, powerful fill effects including gradients, built-in menu expansion/collapse effects, built in button animation effects, heaps of ready-made buttons and menus, undo history, selective copy and multiple projects, transparent backgrounds for Flash menus, optional Flash compression* (up to 90%), built-in FTP client and simple to use Actions including variables and loops. You can also use your own images for buttons, make your own templates and import projects from the excellent 1 Cool Button Tool.

This has to be the Rolls Royce of menu makers and can be proud of the 5 star award it merits.
