This week’s challenge is to create some cool button styles. My goal was to keep it quick and do something I haven’t done before. Not hard since I usually give my buttons short shrift.
So I Did a Version Starting In PowerPoint…
Since it looked to me like cutout shapes were involved, I started in PowerPoint to create them, then essentially animated them in Storyline.
They were fine, but I wasn’t thrilled because they weren’t buttons you could easily copy, paste, and edit.
Then Kortenbosch Shared a Little Something…
Once Jeff Kortenbosch posted his button challenge entry, along with a fabulous how-to video, I decided to see if I could make better buttony buttons like he did – natively in Storyline.
Turns out I could. Thank you, Jeff! Here’s his blog post about how he did it (which is how I made mine too), along with his freebie file.

So that’s what happened. If you’d like to see my result – version 2! – you can see them right here!
