DVDSP2 menu question

Hi all,

I'm using DVDSP2 on a G5. I'm creating a fairly simple menu. 2 buttons, text only. I want the "buttons" to highlight the text only when selected. I have a strange little box that keeps highlighting or the size of the whole button. How do I set the menu so the text only highlights?

While I'm asking, how is the best way to put a picture in the button? My first instinct is to export a still image from my FCP sequence and then bring it in thru the templates. Am I on the right track?

Suz :)

Create your buttons in Photoshop. Use the "layers" function to create the same text with a second color. Import your Photoshop file into DVDSP, create your buttons there with the text from the Photoshop file. You can turn on/off the text color by turning on/off the Photoshop layer.

You can also check or uncheck a box in the Button palette or menu to highlight.
