Step 3 - Add a Section

You can split each menu into sections. To create a section, type your section name beneath the appropriate menu, then add at least 4 hyphens (-) beneath it. You will need an empty line between sections. 

Edit Menu 2

On the line directly beneath the 4 hyphens, you can type a description of the section. Your sections will appear as headings within the menu.

Step 4 - Add Menu Items

To add a menu item, simply type the name of the item below a section of a menu.

Directly beneath the menu item, you can add a description of the item. 

Edit menu 3

Beneath the description, you can add the price.

You can add pricing variants by using a slash (/) between prices.

You can also designate a Market Price by adding $MKT or $Market Price as the price. As long as the currency symbol is first, you can place the price immediately following the menu item or description.

Edit Menu 4

NoteDescriptions for menussections, or menu items are optional.
