Setting Default Styles

You can set a default button and text style for each menu. Additionally, you can choose a default text style for the entire project in DVD Studio Pro Preferences.

DVD Studio Pro uses the default button style any time you create a button, whether by dragging the pointer in the Menu Editor or dragging an asset to the Menu Editor and choosing an option from the Drop Palette that creates buttons.

The default text style is used whenever you add a text object to any menu in a project. You can also set a default text style for each menu. The text style includes the font, its size, and its color. It can also include default text.

You can set the default button and text styles by dragging the style to the Menu Editor or using shortcut menus.

Important: Setting the default button or text style for a menu only affects that menu—each menu has its own default button and text style settings.

To set a button or text style as the menu default by dragging
  1. Select a button or text style in the Palette and drag it to the Menu Editor.

  2. When the Drop Palette appears, choose Set Default Button (or Text) Style.
