In Customize>Primary Navigation I’ve set Navigation Dropdown to Hover. I’ve also set Slideout Navigation to Both. As expected, when I hover over a ‘normal’ menu item in desktop view the pulldown opens automatically – very sexy:) However, when hovering over the ‘hamburger’ Slideout Navigation icon, nothing happens. In mobile view this obviously doesn’t matter, but in desktop view it would be great if the behaviour was consistent with that of the other menu items. Have I missed a setting somewhere, or is this actually a feature request?
The slide-out menu trigger (hamburger icon) requires a click to open the panel. This is intentional, as the slide-out navigation appearing on hover could be a bad experience for users who mistakenly hover over it.
It’s also becoming the “norm” for people now to click on those hamburger icons to reveal menus etc..
