The rolls would not work, or they would get hidden behind a background
Are you aware that a graphic box sent behind other things is NOT, in web design terms, a ‘background’? This is an important point.
I am just calling it “background” to differentiate it. But, either way, I always seem to be fighting getting things to appear.
I am using three elements – two colored boxes and a text box
In this case I’m pretty sure what is meant is a graphic box for the text. That will be output as a bitmap image, something that can be part of a standard rollover. HTML boxes can’t.
I am using graphic text.
Sorry if these responses do not show properly, I’m not clear on how to insert a response. Net out: I’ll keep working it. The tutorials are pretty bad in that they leave out a lot that can really make a difference. Interesting, I have a note directly from a Softpress support person saying NOT to layer objects, yet the tutorial says to layer them. I have to curl up with my much-scorned Reference Guide on a nice day and read through the sections on laying, children, etc. I think most of my problems involve those elements.
