I had this question after viewing Handling the alignment of the Drop down Divs.

I had to add some vertical spacing to the DIV Menu.  Unfortunately,  when  I drop select an item from the sub-menu,  the sub-menu disappears.

Menu in Action -1 is hovering and 2 is attempting to select from the dropdown
 

I will include a fragment of the modified DIV structure for reference.

      <div class="container">    
        <div class="menu-container">
            
          <div class="item">

              <div class="sub-menu">
                <div class="col_1" style="float:left;padding:5px 25px 5px 5px; height:auto;width:auto;">
