Hello snowball77,

In ".main-navigation ul ul a" class update "width: to "300px" and "padding" to "0px 20px;"

And in ".main-navigation a" class remove "padding"

Hope that helped you

Thanks Mandeep, your solution works.
There is just one problem, I need the submenu to drop down maybe 3px lower.
Also when you look at some of the submenus, they are not dropping to a second line rather over writing on themselves?
Can you help with this problem?
I can start another question if you would like?
