How can I create an Nav Dropdown Link Line?

Hello, I’m editing an nav Dropdown link menu. The template I have, when you display the menu what it does is show the nav links and when you go over it the text moves a few positions to the right showing a colored (green) line (Nav Dropdown Link Line object). At the moment I edit one of the existing links, this “Nav Dropdown Link Line” object disappears. Therefore I can edit the names of the links (and destinations pages) but I cannot later add that “Line” object to make the effect of shifting to the right like the default objects.

And the estructure of the Nav items:

I don’t know how create that object, or associate it with the Nav Dropdowns Link (parent). Can someone tell me how to create one and associate it? I tried to duplicate one and drag & drop to Nav Dropdown Link (parent) but, this object cannot admits this action.

Your best bet is to copy the Nav Dropdown Link, then select the parent Nav Dropdown Link Wrapper to paste.

It doesn’t work. I can copy&paste the first one (for example, Pricing).

But when I edit the name of Pricing and delete only “g” the Nav Dropdown Link Line dissapear:

it’s frustrating!!

Welcome to templates, designers get creative sometimes, at the cost of maintainability.
You’d need to share your designer readonly link for anyone to take a look.

Thank you Michael!

My designer readonly link is:

The designer added some characters or whitespace at the start of the item that is styled as a SPAN and turned into a line segment. You’ll be fine as long as you don’t delete that part.

Thank you very much Michael, I have tried what you explained and it actually works like this. I have gone crazy looking for what it could be but I never imagined something so complicated.

you are a genious!
