    Hi! Sick of searching for this…how can I basically center the menu with the logo inline, but not in the center of the menu? I want the logo to the left, but not in a separate column as an image module, I want it with the menu and the whole thing, logo left and menu, centered as a unit. Getting a little frustrated! Hope you can help me…
