How to remove caret icon from Dawn theme header?

Hello! 

 

I am using the dawn theme and was wondering how to remove the caret icon from the header section. When I delete the code for icon-caret.liquid, the caret icons go away but the spacing between each menu item is all messed up.

Hi Jaclyn!

 

Instead of actually deleting the caret code, you can remove this with CSS. Here is the code I used to remove the caret from the Dawn theme and fix the spacing (padding) between menu items:

 

.header__menu-item .icon-caret {
	display: none;
}

summary.list-menu__item {
	padding: 1.2rem;
}

 

Add this to one of your theme's stylesheet and you should be good to go! I like to create a custom one for general Dawn customizations.

Hi Jaclyn!

The following modification to my previous answer will restrict the styling changes to the desktop navigation only:

.header__inline-menu .header__menu-item .icon-caret {
	display: none;
}

.header__inline-menu summary.list-menu__item {
	padding: 1.2rem;
}

 

If you run into any further issues, please let me know 😊

It worked perfectly for desktop but but changed the spacing of the menu items on mobile. Do you know how to fix this?

Hello I have a similar problem. I want to remove a caret, but not from the whole theme. It should only be removed in the menu section. I had a developer do something to the code and after that this problem occured (the caret blocks the word "products"). I told him to undo everything but the issue stayed. Can you tell me how I can remove this caret and where I have to put in the code? I do not know much about coding unfortunately. It would be great if the caret next to the language menu stays.Screenshot 2023-11-08 202819.png
