OK...spend at least 4 hours on trying to get this to
work...watched Lynda.com...here is the problem:
I am trying to create a horizontal menu bar. with effect when
rolling OVER a button.
I have LAYER 1 with a BUTTON SYMBOL (I converted a graphic
button with text "HOME" on it...entered via "T" tool).
from ORIGINAL - If I click on the button symbol the
properties window had the STATE OVER / IMPORT BUTTON window. I then
click to choose OVER...of course my yellow button and text HOME
disappear (just white background...nothing!)...then the COPY UP
GRAPHIC selector apprears. When I hit COPY UP GRAPHIC...only the
text HOME appears...the yellow button is not visible.
WHAT is going on...what am I doing wrong?
I see my BUTTON SYMBOL in the LAYERS list...it is in
The normal state says Page = 1, STATES = State 1, then a "7"
on the right near a little ball icon
When I double click on the yellow button symbol + to get the
PROPERTIES window...then the STATES menu now has States 1 through 4
with STATE 1 highlighted
when I click on OVER then STATE 2 is highlighted NONE of the
little round ball icons have a dot it them...
WHEN I click on COPY UP GRAPHIC then HOME text appears and in
the STATES status...with the list of STATES 1 - 4 ... THERE IS NOW
a dot in the white circle for STATE 1.
I TRIED MY BEST here to describe my situation...I am so
frustrated from the amount of time and emotional energy I have
expended here...THANKS for any suggestions!
