The Off Canvas menu is a menu module. So for example you will need to create a menu module for the main menu and assign it to the "Off Canvas" module position.

Dropdown Animation

Mega Menu includes four transition options for your dropdown submenus:

  • Fade (default)
  • Zoom

This is the transition that occurs when the submenu is opened. To have the submenu appear with no transition, set this to None (No Animation).
