Hi,

I try to create a image button with a hover state. I can upload one image button for the Normal state but a second image for the Hover state won't work?

Anyone knows the solution or is this just another bug?

Image buttons are very old, but they still have to be created the old way. Look in the Gallery to see some of those buttons: you need to create 3 images with specific names, to end in _up, _over, _down. Have a look at one example:

IaageBtn.png

When pointing to one of those images, Captivate will recognize the other states from those names.

But please, since over 6 years shape buttons are available, which make it so much easier to create a button with different images in the states. Why do you keep with those legacy types?. A shape button can be filled with an image.

I had expected the old buttons to disappear. However shape buttons still cannot be used on quiz slides, where tranaparent button are used in all the themes. No idea why they keep those 'old' workflows,  maybe because so many users continue to use old workflwos and never think about using new, easier features. Sorry, but as a trainer and consultant, I see that happening too much.
