How do you make a custom button that is Invisible When not selected

Im just recently switching over to using a mac for authoring. I really like all the features in DVD Studio more than what i was using on a PC for the past 6 years. Which was ulead DVD Workshop 2.
The only problem im having (For Now) is that i cant make my custom buttons invisible. I made this little black shape thing in photoshop and i want to use it in DVDSP for selecting different tracks.
I thought all i had to do was just save the black shape with a transparent background in photoshop as a .psd and import it. But that didnt work.
When i change episodes it just stays black the whole time. I want something that will be invisible when it is not selected.
please help
I can send someone my little shape if they can make it a usable button that i can make invisible in dvdsp. I really need to see the layers done with a shape as a button to see how they were able to make it invisible.
i tried a few tutorials but instead of being invisible all i got was a shape that was stuck white the whole time. this is even when i put the opacity to 0 on normal.
I want to make this into a button

Ok, what you want to do is also in the same tutorial. See the section on "Advanced Highlights" (again, avoid the sections on layered menus), You can create an overlay that does have two colors. The bad news is that there will be absolutely no anti-aliasing at all. This means your graphic will be extremely pixelated. This is just the way the DVD specs are set up, so there is no way around it.
Given that I would highly recommend redesigning your overlay. Take a look at variety of DVDs from Hollywood. See what they are doing in their menus. You can do anything they are doing, but you will notice that the overlay is very simple because of the limited anti-aliasing of DVDs. In all the years that I've been watching DVDs I've only see one DVD use two colors in the overlay, and that was the Jim Carey "The Grinch who Stole Christmas."

  • How do I make a print button that prints "current page" as default

    I am working in Adobe Acrobat Professional 7.0 and have created "print
    buttons" in the pdf document I am working in. The print dialog box has "print all" automatically selected as the current default. How can
    I create buttons that bring the user to the print dialog box automatically selected at "print current page?" I want the user to hit
    the print button and have it automatically print the single page that they are viewing only, so that no one will accidentally print the entire book.

  • How do i make a clickable "button" that works in the PDF?

    I have a newsletter and want to make a button on a page that when clicked, will open the browser and go to that site. I see how to convert objects to a button and enter the URL in its properties but when I convert to a PDF, the entire object is missing. When converting to PDF, I also make sure that hyperlinks and interactive elements are both checked in the General section. I dont know what else I need to do!

    It is a colored square that was also grouped with a text box. I tried also ungrouping it and just putting the button effect on one or the other and had the same problem. When i look at the PDF, it has nothing there, whatever object i have the button effect applied to is totally deleted. I even tried clicking on the area where it was thinking maybe something was invisible and that didnt do anything either. There are no left over or hidden boxes there that could be covering things either. Im good about working cleanly and organized.
    Ill try doing this with a new document tomorrow and see what happens

  • How do you make a new action that adds a signature?

    I want to make a new action that performs OCR, and then adds a drag and droppable signature to the top of the document. I figured out how to do the OCR, but I dont see an option for adding a signiture. How can this be done?'
    I have acrobat pro x

    There are 2 very important points:
    1. Its bundled up with other stuff, so less work and easier to use than pressing each action individually
    2. Much easier for the intended users: someone unskilled in acrobat who just wants to press 1-2 buttons and be done with it.

    I made a flash movie and all i need to do is make a replay button, but i have no idea how. i am using cs5. my movies goes through multiple scenes so at the last scene i want them to click on the reply button to go to the 1st scene again. however, i have no idea where my actions layer and labels layer go or what action to put into my button.
    i looked around, but every video i find, they seem to only be working in one scene and within one layer too.
    this works just fine:

  • How do you make a custom database query?

    I have a web app with a custom field for "Job Title." How do I create a page with all the "Regional Managers"?
    I know it's possible with a web app search form. I don't want a form. I just want the page with the results.
    I know it's possble using Site Settings "categories." I don't want that, I want to use custom fields.
    I don't want to download the entire database and have jQuery sort it on the client machines. It could fail if the database has thousands of records.

    That is correct, everything is happening client-side.
    Simple sorts and filters generally aren't that taxing & anything that is more complex is easily handled by underscore or lo-dash. Completely anecdotal, but I've never really noticed any sort of slowdowns or hiccups with this sort of approach.
    Adding BC's category tags to each item probably isn't feasible, but I think it's the closest you're going to be able to get when it comes to a truly server-side solution.
    That being said, I think the web app search functionality might be something that is worth playing around with. Rather than having a full blown search form on your page, I believe you might be able to rig something up in JS that uses the web app search functionality to give you back what you're looking for in JSON and then inject that where you need it without a page reload. Maybe something in jQuery like:
        url: "/Default.aspx?CCID=12345&FID=567890&PageID={module_oid}&JSON=1",
        data: { CAT_jobTitle: 'Regional Manager'}
    .done( function( results ){  doThingsWithTheResults });
    ...not 100% sure on the specifics of getting that to work, but I think the general principle is sound. 

  • How do you make a customized template?? When I customize an original template it does not apply it to the whole document! How do you apply style changes permanently to your document???

    When one customize text styles or spacing between paragraphs. How do you apply settings permanently to a document???
    Should you create a new template???

    Happily, when you edit a document created by a given template, the changes aren't stored in the template.
    If you want to get a template embedding your changes, you need to use :
    File > Save as Template
    then use the newly created custom template as starting point.

  • How do you make the "Continue" button exit project on quiz attempt results page

    When the project quiz is finished, on the quiz results slide it has a continue button to press, but seems worthless since it just turns into a black screen when finished instead of closing the project like you think it should. Any suggestions on how to make that button close the project?

    Closing projects only works reliably when publishing to EXE format.  Web browser security often prevents HTM/SWF content windows from being closed in the same way.
    Try placing a slide AFTER your quiz results slide so that the Continue button has somewhere to go to.  Then change your Preferences > Project > Start and End > Project End Options > Action to Close Project.  This way, the project is trying to close down naturally, not as a result of clicking a button.  You can make this final slide as short as you like, but a second or so is usually good just in case you have Preferences set to Fade Out On Last Slide.

  • How do you make the movie button a screenshot or miniature movie?

    When my main menu comes up, I want to add the first 6 or so episodes of a TV show. But When I drag the movies onto the screen, only a text button shows up. I could have sworn that some time before I got the video to show up as both text and a screenshot of that specific video. I'd love to have it so all six episodes have both the text title and a miniature playing movie from that episode, but I wasn't sure how to do it.

    Did you first click on the lower right button's tab and select the one button style you want and thereafter add your QT movie. You should be able to get all six QT movies on there but if not just come on back.

    My whole family uses itunes.  I want to make a playlist that uses other playlist.  However, when I start a smart playlist and click playlist is I get a dropdown menue that doesn't show all my playlists.  My wife's name happens to start with a V so all of hers are at the bottom and don't show up.
