4. If you want, change the action settings for the action button.
In most cases, the default setting for the action button that you chose is
appropriate for what you want the button to do. For example, the action
setting for a Forward or Next button is Hyperlink to Next Slide. If you
want the slide to hyperlink to some other location, change the Hyperlink
5. Click OK.
The Action Settings dialog box vanishes, and the button is created.
Here are some additional thoughts concerning action buttons:
✓ Change the look of a button: You can format action buttons like any
other shape object. Therefore, you can use Drawing Tools on the Ribbon
to apply fill colors, line styles, or shape effects such as bevels and 3-D
rotations. For more information, refer to Chapter 12.
✓ Move a button: To move a button, just click it to select it. Then use the
mouse to drag the button to a new location.
