Formatting Drill Through Button

Hi. I set up my drill through button. When I select a project, then the button color turns on, so user knows to click on it (see visual attached). But before selection, the button is greyed out (see visual attached), which kind of makes it hard to read, and I couldn't figure out from the Format view how to make the text and outline of this button to be, say, black and so more visible. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks.

Hi @aishayeoh1 ,

 

You can set the background color of the button by using General-Effects-Background to make it more visible.

Or you can change the way the button interacts so that it no longer only changes the style when pressed.
