Interactive button won't delete

I created a interactive button to go back to the top of my document.  I then deleted them all and recreated the button, however, now there are two buttons showing on the pages even though I can only interact with the new one.  The old one does not have any data but when I open the document up again it is showing "back to top" on both buttons.  I have screenshots but I'm not sure how to upload them.

Basically it won't let me delete the first interactive button I made, its just a blank box that I can move around but can't edit properties.

As per the description above, you want to delete the interactive button in a PDF form, Is that correct?

Please refer to the following KB doc which discusses the similar scenario Delete interactive buttons on all pages

That is correct I'm trying to delete interactive buttons in a PDF using Acrobat Pro.  The blank buttons do not show up in the fields to delete alphabetically, and when looking at heir properties they don't have a name.  I cannot edit any of the properties I can only move them. Untitled.png

I think I know what you're trying to do but the redaction tool can't highlight interactive buttons.

Sure it can. Hold down Ctrl when using it and draw a redaction box around the field, and then apply it.

Honestly that is a bit weird, it wouldn't work at first but now it is.  Thank you, but I also can't use this method because it just leaves a black box over it.

Before applying the redaction right-click it, select Properties and you'll be able to change the fill color.
