I grouped two text boxes and added a button action to it. Now I have been told by the client thet they no longer need this interactivity. I want to keep the text boxes, but delte the button that was there. Is this possible as I've looked everywhere and found nothing.
I figured it out eventually and it's quite simple. Pity there wasn't any info on how to go about it though. Click on the grouped text boxes, then use the Convert to Object button at the bottom of the panel (see image).
This removes the Button function and the grouped text boxes no longer make the cursor turn into a hand.
Not at all intuitive. Thanks for posting the solve!
the other solution:
Do not select the Button itself, instead select the active state [Normal], copy your selection to the clipboard, do Paste In Place. Do the same with the other states [Rollover] and [Click] if they contain objects.
Important Note: "Convert To Object" will always remove the whole button.
If there are objects in [Rollover] or [Click] you want to keep they would be removed together with the button.
