Is it possible to make a button any shape you want?
OK, what I want to do is to be able to have a transparent button that fits exactly to a certain area of an image, so that users can click it, to find out more information about that area. But I don’t want to have to make them outside of lectora and import them, as this would slow down my work time.
There are other options for the shape of the button in v12 (Basic Shapes, Triangles, Trapezoids, etc…) – it’s to the far left on the Style Tab under the button section. You can then resize the shape.
As for a truly “custom” shape – you can’t grab the anchor points/change the anchor points like in Powerpoint…so you can’t really reconfigure the shapes. But there are a decent selection of shapes in the dropdown – you could probably finagle the size, etc to get as close as you need.
Anchor points are represented by “yellow diamond” grab points on the shape. Try one of the callouts or the block arrows, each of those has two anchor points that can be manipulated to create a variety of shapes. Rounded rectangles allow you to change the corner rounding, Stars allow you to change the star thickness, etc.
