Questions:

I am making a sliding menu. I have successfully created a navigation drawer and menu items inside the navigation view in groups. But I want to make the items closer to each other. Can I change the spacing or size of items and text?
Please help…

How to&Answers:

Create following Theme in your styles.xml for Navigation Drawer and you’re done.

<style name="NavigationTheme" parent="AppTheme">
    <item name="android:textSize">16sp</item>
    <item name="android:layout_marginBottom">02dp</item>
</style>

Apply this theme to your navigation drawer layout

Answer:

You can apply following Theme in your styles.xml for Navigation Drawer

<style name="NavigationTheme" parent="AppTheme">
    <item name="android:textSize">14sp</item>
    <item  name="android:textStyle">bold</item>
</style>

Apply this theme in Navigation Drawer

android:theme="@style/NavigationTheme"

Answer:

The others solutions didn’t worked for me, so I finally solved using the following theme:

<style name="NavigationTheme" parent="AppTheme">
    <item name="listPreferredItemHeightSmall">40dp</item>
</style>

And I applied it to the NavigationView:

<com.google.android.material.navigation.NavigationView
    android:theme="@style/NavigationTheme"
