Change Font Weight by value on Roll Over in Menu

Go to solution Solved by Ziggy,

Recommended Posts


 Iam trying to change the weight of a font (with available weights) by value on roll over on a menu with drop downs  in SS 7.1

 I have achieved rollover change with following code when code value is bold, but not when  the value is a weight ie 400  etc

.header-nav a:hover{font-weight:200;/*Default font weight*/
.header-nav a:hover{font-weight:400;/*Font weight on hover*/

Also with transition to bold there is a position shift  which Iam unsure is enevitable but with a smaller  weight increase would be less noticable 

Any help or advice much appreciated 

Thank you

You have the hover state set twice:


Try this code instead:

// Default font weight
.header-nav a {
// Font weight on hover
.header-nav a:hover {
