I can not tell for sure if this is a bug of the RadMenu since the scenario that you are implementing is a custom one. Therefore in order to be able to determine what is causing the behavior that you encounter only an image is not enough to replicate the issue. Can you please open a support ticket and send us a simplified runnable project that we could inspect locally and come back to you with a suitable solution?
