Adding Text to a Button
You can add text to any button on a standard menu. You can even create text-only buttons
by creating a button active area and then adding the text to it.
The default text font and color are set in the Text pane in DVD Studio Pro Preferences.
To add text to a button
Make sure the Style tab in the Button Inspector is displayed.
To add the text, do one of the following:
• Select the button in the Menu Editor, then press Return. An insertion point appears at
the bottom of the button. Type your text here. Press Return to add an additional line,
or press Enter to exit the text entry mode.
• Select the button in the Menu Editor, then type the text in the Text entry area of the
Button Inspector. To add an additional line, press Return or Enter.
• Select the button in the Menu Editor, then click just below its active area. An insertion
point appears. Type your text. Press Return to add an additional line, or press Enter to
exit the text entry mode.
Note: The default settings in the Button Inspector’s Text Formatting section at the bottom
of the Style tab place the text at the bottom of the button. You can change these settings
before typing the text, in which case the text appears at the new position.
Select the Shadow checkbox (next to the text entry area) to apply the menu’s drop shadow
settings to the text.
Choose the text’s position (Bottom, Top, Left, Right, or Center) from the Position pop-up
menu. You can use the X Offset and Y Offset entries to fine-tune the position.
Select Include Text in Highlight if you want the text to highlight along with the button
when selected or activated.
You can edit the text by clicking within it or by dragging the pointer over the portion of
the text to be replaced, then typing the new text.
Creating Menus Using the Standard Method
The button’s active area extends to include the text if you choose to include the text in
the highlight. Use care to ensure that the active area does not inadvertently overlap other
buttons on the menu.
