Adding Text to a Blank Action Button
The blank action button you saw in Table 19.2 can be very useful. You can place several of
them on a slide and type text into them, creating your own set of buttons. To type text
into a blank button, follow these steps:
1. Place a blank action button on the slide (from the Shapes gallery).
2. Right-click the action button and choose Edit Text. An insertion point appears in
it. (You can also select the button and simply start typing.)
