Option to change color of hypertext?

The tutorial says once i have highlighted text and set it as a hyperlink, I should be able to go to the Inspector and change the color of that hyperlinked text.

Is that only for HTML text – or does it apply to graphic text? I do not see the option right now using graphic text.

This is for HTML text. Graphic text is a very different thing.
Remember, it is a bitmap (pixel) graphic when output, not text
controlled by style instructions that are rendered in the browser.

Keep HTML text and graphic text very separate in your mind, it’ll
help you as you get further into web design.

Thanks. I’m clear on the difference and it seems logical that he system does not “see” an individual word. It is just a graphic.
Do you know, but the way, whether I hyperlink an entire button group or the individual “click” item I have in that group?

Exactly. You can of course set up the colour of any characters within
some graphic text, but this is just configuring how the pixels within
the graphic will look. It isn’t tied to hyperlinks; that’s an aspect
of HTML text that’s managed by the browser (using styling
instructions published with your site).

or the individual “click” item I have in that group?

It shouldn’t matter. However, you might find it simpler to stick to
applying the action to the group container rather than an individual
item within the group, as there can be times (although in specific
circumstances only) where you’d need to select the right item in
order to reconfigure the action. If you always apply it to the group
you’ll always know what item ‘owns’ the action.
