Submenu Icons Best Practices

Here are some recommendations when building your own submenu icons.

About the names

  • Use a descriptive submenu name but no more than 20 or 25 characters.
  • Use short descriptive names for image code.
  • Use names with no spaces for the submenu and icon image files.
  • Replace the spaces by using the dash under "_".

About icon image files

  • Try using .png files for your icon images.
  • Try to keep your icon images as small as possible without losing quality.

About submenu icons size

  • Add only icons that relate to each other.
  • Try to create small, lightweight and easy to set up submenu icons.
  • If you've designed a large submenu of icons with more than hundred icons, try splitting it into two or more submenus.
