Maintaining text on a button while button changes states

Nov 30, 2014

Hi, I am a newbie at this.  I managed to create a parallelogram, add text to it and set it up with 3 stages.  When I preview the slide;  in the initial stage, "normal"  the text is visible, but during the "hover" and "down" stages the text disappears.  I have gone back into the slide to try to correct this but the text stays visible when I click on the different stages.  Is there another way to approach this and correct the "button" to maintain the text?  Thank you for your help.

Hi Niomi


not sure I understand what the issue is.  I can see the text on all states, normal, hover and down when I preview the file.


You are working locally by that I mean not from a  network or USB drive...that can sometimes muck up how you see things.  Also that your DPI is set to 96DPI

Let me know if you need any more help

Hello Niomi!

I was able to recreate the issue you mentioned. When in the hover state, the text disappeared.  There was an additional text box on top of the item in the normal state. I placed this in the hover state as well.

Now, on hover, the text appears. Attached is an updated file. Hope this helps!
