State buttons are used throughout the AXLE template. They are used to combine different objects to create a unified hover effect on the text and image.
Go to the Widgets Library > Buttons > State Button. Drag the state button onto the page.
Right click on the state button and select Clear All Styling. Repeat this and select Clear Widget Contents. Now it’s ready for full customization.
Adjust the size of your state button as desired and drag and drop any text, images, or objects that you want to include in the state button.
To customize the rollover effects, select the state button, go to the upper left and select State Button: Normal. Now you can select the state that you want to customize. You can do some of the following:
- Change the opacity of individual objects
- Change the font color, size, or spacing
- Enable a fade transition
Here’s a great video (5 minutes) by Adobe Muse that shows how to use State Buttons with rollover effects.
Forms are yet to be responsive within Muse. To make sure your forms are appearing properly for every device you must change the size for each breakpoint. For each breakpoint, make sure your form is smaller than your next smallest breakpoint. AXLE has pre-designed and sized forms for your use.
