Hi- I created an html menu, but only when I published it did I realize that I had somehow applied a grain texture to the buttons. I'd rather not start from scratch, does anyone know if there is a way to remove the grain? I can double-click on a button, and it takes me to the symbol tab, and that's where I see the grain texture, on up, over and down etc. Any thoughts? Thanks!

it should be editable in that symbol pane.
select the button body and use the properties panel to replace the fill.
you will need to edit each state of course.

Thanks- here's the thing-I don't want any texture at all, but I don't see a "none" option. Is there one?

select the textured area
go down to the properties panel
where it says.. Texture/ Grain.. make the % setting.. 0
if you can't see the texture option you may have the properties panel half open..
on the bottom right of the panel is a small grey triangle.. click that and you will see the texture property.

Websites are getting bigger and complicated by the day. Video, images, custom fonts are all great for showcasing your product/service. But the price to pay in terms of reduced page load times and ultimately, decreased sales, can lead to some difficult decisions about what to cut.

Hi, Z,

 Sorry I can't seem to get this straight, but the grain % setting IS at zero, but I still have a grainy look-maybe the texture isn't my problem? Would you mind taking a look at it? It's at http://www.iatse212.com/dev/index6.html.

Thanks!

yes that's odd..it has a cross-hatch texture.. try giving it a different texture and then setting it to 0% again.
If that doesn't work set it to grid 3.. and see if that's acceptable

hmm. no, that didn't work- must be something I did incorrrectly- listen, I'm starting from scratch-is there a way I can just recreate the menu, and transfer over the pop-up menu elements? Thanks again.

Actually, I recreated it and just transferred the gif files over, and that did it! Thanks for your help. Um..you're the expert, should I award you the points? :)

Up to you.. there is an answer for future use but you're not obliged to give me points as you solved it yourself.
Another option is to apply to support to have your points refunded and the question put in PAQ so it is not lost.
