A make button wizard would be great! So if I pointed to a specific folder, all graphics named in a particular way would be grokked as states:

_Normal

_Over

_Down

_Hover

_Selected

_MyCustom

I spent quite a bit of time manually setting up buttons this weekend... Doesn't take that long (pretty fast once you get rolling) but it's a tedious task that is best left to the robot slaves connected to our keyboards

You've created individual (state) PNGs and want to use them in SL?  If so, insert the first one > select it > click States > Edit States > create a new state and then Change Picture to one of the other PNGs.  Hover, Visited etc have preset properties, but you can also create your own.

HTH.



Hello everyone,

It might be simple, but it is driving me crazy. How do you change or insert a picture in the EDIT STATES panel?

Thanks

Hi Gonzalo, you don't actually change or insert the picture in the actual Edit States panel - you do it on the slide.

What you do is open the States Editor for the image you want to work with - then in the States panel select the state you want to change.(I'm assuming that you already have added states for your custom image and are now just trying to figure out how to change their appearance)

Once you have selected the state in the States Editor panel - go up to the main slide area and add the image or symbol you want to include for that state. If you are trying to swap out the image with another one that you have created, just  right click on it and select change picture.
