comment Critique: Scrollable flyout nav menu
As for the menu itself, I agree that, as it stands, there isn't enough to definitively let the user know that he can scroll. I think I can make some improvements without having to completely scrap the concept, though. And, I think that if people are inclined to swipe scroll the menu rather than click the buttons, the concern about multiple clicks goes away. I don't know if there's any research on this, but one swipe versus a click into a sandwich menu (a false dilemma, but a realistic one at this stage of the process) are probably pretty equivalent.

comment Critique: Scrollable flyout nav menu
Thanks for your feedback! The user buttons will probably end up getting reworked a bit - I don't think it's necessary for "Change Password" to get such a prominent view and hope to get it incorporated into other settings. If we're down to two icons, I can maybe do away with icons entirely and just link the name and add a text "Log out" link. We'll see how that goes.

Thanks for your feedback! The row is draggable on mobile and should be scrollable on desktop - do let me know if that's not the case. I do agree that more visual cues for the submenu can be given and will work on that.

Thanks for the feedback! Check out the Pen on mobile - it does scroll on swipe there. I thought about making it mouse-draggable, but I figured that the scroll is less likely to pop there, and the arrows are easier to click with a mouse than touch with a finger. I'm not opposed to the the "More" menu option, but we liked the idea of consistency between breakpoints, and dealing with submenus would be become more problematic. See my edits for some further explanation. Your usability concerns are certainly valid but I think that the occurrences of scrollable navs on the desktop will be rare.

@JamesEarnshaw If you're referring to the smallest view where the search box and the logo get weird, that happened when I copied/pasted to Codepen and didn't feel like fixing it because it was beyond the scope of the question. I'm interested in hearing more about awkward design rules though, that's a critique I didn't expect to hear!

@ZachSaucier Unusable from a technical perspective? If you're viewing in Codepen on a mobile, make sure it's set to 1x. The menu scrolls on swipe; the arrows aren't required there but admittedly that might not be obvious to the uninitiated.

@Nit - Criticism is expected, but I would hope that you could at least delve into the "why" a bit! Feel free to post an answer :)
