You can add additional menu buttons by drawing additional buttons wherever they are needed you can draw a button any time the crosshair cursor is visible just click and drag to create the proper rectangular button size you need Remember, 36 buttons maximum!
You can continue drawing button rectangles to add buttons, or you can use the Duplicate Command to clone them Select the button (or buttons) you wish to copy first, and then issue the Edit > Duplicate command Remember that each button you clone will contain all instructions, commands, and properties authored into it so far It is possible to duplicate more than one button at a time When you duplicate a button, the clone will appear slightly down and right from the original like this:

Naming and Renaming Menu Buttons
Note that all buttons are by default named Button X , where X is a numerical sequence that begins at 1 Naming of the button is accomplished in the Name field of the Button Property Inspector
buttons themselves change color to indicate the highlight modes By way of an example, let s look at a button from the Recipe 4 DVD tutorial menu: In the Normal mode, the button looks innocent enough:
To rename a button:
Click on the button to select it, Click in the Name field of the Button Inspector; Modify or replace the Button Name text in the Name field Double-click to select the entire Name field for easy replacement, then just type a new name or modify the name as needed

Setting the Button s Highlights Using Overlay Colors: Simple
Simple Overlay Colors is the least complicated highlight scheme in DVD Studio Pro To make the difference in the highlight states visible, choose Simple Overlay Colors and assign the Apple Shape Simple Button to each button

Creating Simple Menu Highlights without Subpicture Overlays
Once the names are in place, you can set up a HIGHLIGHT scheme some way of colorizing the buttons to display useful status information to the DVD Viewer In their most rudimentary form, menu highlights may be created by setting the appropriate colors for the Selected and Activated button states, and letting the

Using Color Set 2 and 3
Three different sets of highlight colors can be used, which allow great flexibility in creating complex highlighting schemes Each Button can be directed to use the Set 1, Set 2, or Set 3 colors in the Button Property inspector In this way, you can accommodate a menu screen that has buttons requiring different highlights in order to be visible over an inconsistent background picture (imagine a sunset shot on the ocean blue water below the horizon line, orange-red sunshine above) To select a Highlight set, first click on the button to be adjusted, then click on the Highlight Set property pop-up to select the desired Highlight Set That button will now follow those Color Settings
