Step One
Go to the Widgets Library > Buttons > State Button. Drag the state button onto the page.
Step Two
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.
Step Three
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.

Rollover Effects

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.
