editing built-in buttons

Jun 01, 2012

Is there a way to edit the built in buttons in StoryLine? Currently, the built-in buttons have a rounded corner. I need to make them square. I know I could create my own buttons from scratch, but I already have a lot of pages where I used buttons and now I need to change them.

Any ideas?

I was playing around with this and there looks to be at least one workaround way to do a square button. 

YMMV but it's not that hard to do.  Once you create one, you can obviously copy and paste it a soften as you need it.

1.  Add a new button and make it a Check Box (style 3).

2. Change the colors for your button using the Check options.

3. After "coloring" your button, it will still have a Selected state that includes the checkmark that you cannot completely get rid of (at least I wasn't able to do it).

4. To get rid of the checkmark that appears when clicked, edit the states of the checkmark box.  Delete the Selected State that includes the checkmark. 

If you then need a Selected State that is different from the other states, you can copy one of the remaining checkmark boxes and make it the new Selected State.  However, the checkmark will reappear--looks like it is permanently etched to the Selected State. 

Instead, you'll need to create a new state--call it something like Selected-New.  Then color and fashion it as you want and add a trigger to set the checkmark to this state when clicked.

Work for you?
