Hi Rémi,

If you want square buttons, I suggest making them with shapes because you cannot have sharp corners on a button, they are all a bit rounded.

(Si tu veux des boutons avec les coins carrés, c'est préférable de créer les formes toi-même. Il n'y a pas de façon de modifier la forme des boutons pour avoir des coins carrés.)

Hope it helps, have a nice day!

Bonne journée!

Hi Rémi! Annie Jean's idea is a good one, and here's something that you might save you a little time, if you'd like to also quickly apply some built-in button states to your shape (such as Hover, Down, Visited, and Disabled):

  1. Draw your square or rectangle shape that you will use as a button.
  2. Next, insert one of the built-in Storyline buttons. You won't keep this button, you'll delete it in a minute... you'll just use it to copy its formatting).
  3. On the built-in button, apply the formatting you like (color, outline, etc.), and edit the states to appear the way you want.
  4. With the built-in button still selected, click the Format Painter (the paintbrush icon) on the Home tab. 
  5. Now click the rectangle shape you created. The states and other attributes of the built-in button will get copied to your shape. Now you can delete the built-in button and you're left with a nice square-cornered button of your own, with states all set up for you.

Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks Jeanette!
