From the properties panel you can customize up to 14 parameters, such as size, colors, title font, font size, tweening speed, rollover color, etc. Resize Menu Component on stage to set the size. The height will be consider for item height, the width will be taken for menu bar length; if there are to many items for the length, 2 arrow-buttons will appear at the ends of the bar to help you navigate horizontally. The tool's skin is very modern and looks good within every web site.
