Can I leave overlapping buttons in DVD menu
on Nov 25, 2016 at 7:11:12 pm

Hey,
once I created my Encore CS6 DVD project, I clicked "Check project" before building the disc. The only problem found consists of "Overlapping buttons" in the DVD menu, which I created with Photoshop. The buttons "highlights" are actually overlapping, but I do want this in my menu. I was wondering... Can I leave those buttons overlapping or do I have to edit my menu necessarily? (Only highlights are overlapping, not buttons themselves). Answer as soon as you can please 🙏🏻

Thank you in advance :)

The hit area of a button, and therefore the "button" is not just the visible areas of the button, it is the rectangle that includes all elements in the button group - highlights and other.

So if Encore shows you red overlapping rectangles in the menu viewer, you have overlap that needs to be fixed.

You can put some "button" elements outside button groups (usually lower layers in photoshop if not the background itself), and these do not contribute to button overlap. But the highlights must be in the button group.

Thanks. But exactly what will happen if I have overlapping buttons?

I don't recall whether the build fails, no buttons work, some buttons don't work, or the results are unpredictable. Encore can't tell which button applies to which part of the frame, so can't assign each button and link correctly.
