I'm hoping you can help me with a head-scratching quandry.
Thanks to the "skinny on skins" help file, I've been adding buttons
(whee!). They all seem to work nice and dandy, but there's one of
them that does something that requires it to remain in the
"selected" state after pressing it. It's a button that opens a

selected even after clicking my custom button. Index and Search
likewise behave properly and stay in the selected state, but then
these three buttons are RoboHelp built-in buttons. Is there any way
I can get my buttons to behave like this?
Unfortunately, I've never discovered a way to make this work.
I think the reason that things are this way are because clicking
each of the built in buttons causes a more or less semi-permanent

actually a workaround for something that I've already submitted a
feature request for. My button is a "faux Glossary" and it looks
like I was too smart for my own good! Solved one problem and now I
Ah well, I'll submit another feature request (thanks kindly
for the quick link) and hope for future releases.
