Using Interactive Buttons

An interactive button gives you the the ability to link one page to another page in the current Web site, a site on the World Wide Web, or an e-mail address. You don't have to know HTML code to create, modify, and link an interactive button. You can select a button style from a pre-defined list and then add button text, select button and background colors, and specify the font style, size, and color for all states of the button including the original, hover, and pressed states. After you create the button, you can define a hyperlink for a button.
