I've searched and seen responses to questions about how to make text converted to paths function with a larger clickable area by using a rectangle with opacity set to zero, but I'm a little unclear if I can do this without rebuilding my buttons (I'm a new user). I basically have my site set up - what is the most effective way to go back and fix this for multiple buttons? I'm assuming I can just go into the group for each button (they all have rollovers) but am not sure if I have to recreate each one or can just add the rectangle within each group...thanks in advance!
I think you are just going to have to manually do the conversion. One area of weakness in FC is performing find and replaces or smart swapping.
