OK, I figured it out. I was using the wrong set of buttons.

Here is how you do it I think. I've got it mostly done and I **think** it works but will confirm latery.

1. Select a button like "corporate--> Corporate Video Button HD"
2. Delete the video portion.
3. The text portion you can either delete or keep. I am leaning towards keeping the text (renaming it to something useful) and turning off the view in the "layers" window right before completing the final build (deselect the eye next to the text and it won't show up in the final render.)
4. You can now edit the "underline" in this button. click the "=1" in the layers window to select the underline/highlight, make it bigger/smaller/thicker/thinner.
5. change its color by clicking "menu"-->Edit Menu Color Set and changing the color for selected state or active state of highlight group 1.
6. Preview these with the preview buttons in the menu window or check preview in the menu color set.

preview the project and you can see that the underline shows up selected/activated as you move the cursor around or use the arrow keys.

You need a "link" for the button in order to see this all work, you can temporarily link to other buttons on the same menu or link a button to itself to see this work.

Did I miss anything?
