Can I create a smart shape for the submit button?

I'm becomng very well versed in using shapes for interactivity in Captivate - but I'm wondering if it's possible to replace the default submit button formats (text/transparent/image) on quiz slides with a smart shape?  My client would like to see a submit button with rounded corners and specific styling. I could go build the button as separate images and load them into the gallery, but it would be much simpler if I could create it as a smart shape button.  I did find an older thread on this, but no answer as to whether it's possible with the submit button.  I couldn't find any suggestions on a google search either - so I expect it's not an option.  

I thought it might be worth a shot asking in the community though... 

 

Thanks!

Brian

Not possible. Only the three old type of buttons can be used as embedded buttons for quiz/score slides.

 

However the Transparent button can have rounded corners, and you can fill it exactly the same way as a shape button: solid color, gradient, texture, image.

 

You can find an in-depth comparison of all button types in:

Hi Lilybiri,

 

Thank you for the quick response!  That was what I expected, but I thought it was worth asking.  These buttons are also supposed to have states, so I'l go with my plan to create images.

 

Cheers!
