    How can i change the color of the text on a button in Roll Over or Click state (Cs5.5)

      Hello,

       

      Here is the problematic:

       

      1° How can i change the color of the text on a button in Roll Over or Click state (Cs5.5)

      - I've many button in a doc im creating

      - the color of the buttons is white with black stoke & black text

      - in roll over state i want them to inverse the color coding (the text white & bottom black)

      - currently the text becomes invisible as black on black cant be seen (ive stroked it white but that looks ugly)

      - i would just like to know if there is a function made for this?

       

       

      My other questions:

       

      2° Ive a presentation on which Ive created buttons which tigger pop-up animations

      - i have 5 buttons which trigger animations

      - the viewer can chose to Click on any of the buttons randomly

      - the problem is once the animation is open how can it be close... either:

      a) by it self after "40" seconds

      b) when ther viewer clicks another button

       

      3° Ive created buttons linking pages..

      - "go to page xxx"

      - when i do a preview and click on the buttons the links dont take me to the right pages

      - is that normal? (maybe in preview its suppose to be like that)

       

      4° I would like to intergrate YouTube videos in the presentation so they play inside the docment.. when i tried.. it said the 'link isnt a flash video'

      - what should i do?

       

      5° Once i export it into Swf. how how can i visualize it? or put it online?

       

      Thank you for your time.

          You should setup Object Styles - these can also include Paragarph Styles that can be triggered when the Style is selected.

          I'm not sure what you mean - I don't do files with Animations

          Does it work properly when you export it to the finished file?

          InDesign won't link directly to youtube videos. I think your best bet would be to use Downloader to download the video and embed them directly in Indesign.

          You can look up how to embed a SWF file into your HTML - but it depends what you mean by "online" there's a dozen ways to get a file "online".
