"Well, sir, it's this rug I had. It really tied the room together."The Dude, The Big Lebowski
As "the Dude" would confirm, a single accent can really tie a menu together.
Accents are a collection of graphic design elements that do what they say - draw attention (or 'accent') to your menu headings or food items.
iMenuPro offers various types of accents to cover any type of menu - from casual to elegant - all of which can be colorized to any color to match your design. Some Menu Styles use accents, some do not, but you can change accent options on any menu using the
Design > Accents command.

How they Work
Heading Accents are preset for each Menu Style - some styles use them and some do not. To override the Menu Style heading accents for all headings of a particular type, use the

To change only a specific heading's accent, edit the heading itself and choose the Accent and color under
Accent. To remove an accent for a specific heading, edit the heading and choose Accent

The Accent itself. To remove all Heading Accents for the heading type, choose
Check this box and then choose a color from the color selector to colorize the accent. Note: If the original accent has more than one color, this option applies a monochrome colorization to the accent.
Food box/line (width and height)
These selectors allow you to adjust the relative width and height of underline/overline accents for food items and graphic boxes that surround a single or multiple food items.
Use Style Defaults
At any time, click
Use Style defaults to use the Style's default Accent options.
Tip! Some divider Accents are available for Title Headings only as they are just too tall for Normal headings. Also, some Accents like the overlines, the rooster, the flower, etc. appear on top of the heading instead of below it. If the accent you want doesn't fit your menu, try using the
Before/After spacing to give the Heading (or Food Item) more breathing room.
