Sorry, but I'm not sure I understand. What are you trying to make bigger? The bounds of the button?

Can you please restate the question?

Add a shape or text to the button group, and reduce the fill or opacity to 1%. That should force the object to take up space but still remain invisible.

If you reduce the opacity or fill of the new object to 0%, then Encore won't recognize the object and the size of the hit area won't increase.

Heck, I don't know. I answered just in case that's what was meant. :-)

Well he did say nothing happened when he prefixed the layer with (=1) or (=2). Federico's method for trying to increase the selection area will work providing that he also turns the opacity of the (=2) highlight to zero in the 'Edit Menu Color Set' options.

Maybe nothing happened because he didn't prefix the Layer Group with a (+). Not doing this would cause "nothing" to happen when he tries to create the button highlights in photoshop.
