There is support for "custom menu" is a good thing. But there is a less comfortable, it is sub menu that floats left. Due to navigation menu was floats right, it might be better if the submenu is also made to floats right.

  • Keywords navigation custom menu removed
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release
  • Summary changed from Sub navigation menu floats right to Make main nav drop-down items fit on screen
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

I tried this when we were updating the styles for the nav menus. It is a bit of a mixture of the RTL styles for the menus. While it looked better with regards to the edge of the screen, the usability suffered a bit and there is a visual oddity in navigation-mocup.jpg (edge of the 'dropdown' underneath the middle of the previous menu item).

I suspect the best answer is, in a future theme, to not have the menus go right up to the edge of the main container. There may be some javascript solutions to stop the overflow/force the element back, but I always think this sort of menu should be achieved with just CSS.

As a workaround, anyone wanting to do this needs to make sure that a hierarchical drop-down is not the end-most item in their menu.

I think this problem becomes moot when moving away from bp-default - these nav menus are handled by your WP theme.
