Muse generates 243 copies of my dingbat... A simple png file... When I choose to use the effects.
To illustrate my problem or the bug...
In this video, I created a blank document, and insert a simple menu, with a dingbat.
Exported the document as HTML. Perfect, just "1" file was used or "produced".
Them at 1:58 of video, I applied the effect on the png file, on one of the states.
The final result is 8 files.... Instead of 2... : (
From my common sense, you created four buttons, each with a rollover state. So 4 buttons x 2 states = 8 images.
Not that tricky, I guess.
The problem is that Muse interpreted each one as a single element if inner glow effect is present, and export this way. It generates too much garbage.
It should be smarter, 4 buttons use the same image, so use only 1 image. It's wrong that muse creates 3 copies of the image, to have each one independent.
That's the reason of this topic 243...
If you access the site, http://dingbat2352.businesscatalyst.com/index.html
With Chrome, and click on the hamburger menu -> more tools -> developer tools
A new Tab/window appear and between console and network, you see sources
On the left of this new window, choose images folder.
Them you will see how many images this site has.
243... Just for 2 links
Now I know that it's bug...
Just need to remove the effect and apply a new image, replacing the effect.

Funny interpretation for something being a bug! Colouring PNGs by using the "Glow" effect, is an undocumented "hack", in a certain sense a coincidentally working side effect. The documented way to achieve, what you want, is to assign different coloured versions of your images to the different states.
