How to insert your own buttons to create custom build Flash menus?

1) First build your menu by adding the required buttons, URL's and text for each button.

2) Then set the transparency for both the submenu and main menu to 100% (see screen print below)

4) Make a screenprint of the create menu, which by now consists of only textual buttons

5) Either import the screen print into Flash or a any paint program and use it as a tracing image to define the dimensions for your own buttons

6) When you are done building either the graphic file or Flash file with the new buttons, you can insert the background as a background movie clip or as a background picture.
