How to perform A/B testing on drop down menu's with Google Optimize?

Hi everyone,

 

I've been trying to run an A/B test on one of our websites. I would like to change the background color of a button in the menu. The problem is that the buttons appears in a drop down menu. 

 

When I click on the button to access the drop down menu in Google Optimize, I can edit the menu button. But I cannot acces the actual drop down menu which contains the button I actually want to edit. 

 

Does anyone know how to edit buttons in a drop down menu?

Hi,

for editing interactive elements you can use Interactive mode in editor. 

1. Go into Interactive mode
2. Highlight the specific section
3. Hit shift +enter
Your element will now be selected. 
Although the dropdown disappears the element should stay selected. You can check if that's true in hierarchy navigation / element editor. 
Other way to select an interactive element is to create a change and use selector editing to type out the exact selector (or pseudo-selector if we are talking about hovers etc.)
