View Full Version : text getting squished on convert to button

07-26-2011, 05:12 PM
Im trying to make some buttons. Ive made a primitive rectangle and a text object with rosewood std font. Then I put the tex over the rectangle the rectangle is a little bigger than the text in size.
The problem is when I do convert to symbol(Button) the text gets all squished, I have no idea why.

Anyone know what is going on?

Create an empty movie clip on stage and place
your text inside. Then give this empty movie clip an instance
name so you can refer to it.


place your rectangle and text on stage then use the select cursor

(in upper left top of toolbox) select them both (leave lots of space when selecting) before converting both to a single movie clip. Then give the new movieclip an instance name.
