  • Large (default) - uses a "large" font size.
  • Small - uses a "small" font size.

# Variant

The Variant option allows you to choose from the current theme color options with the default as Secondary.

# Appearance

The Appearance drop-down selection allows you to change the shape of the button. The options are Normal (default), Link, Pill, or Squared.

INFORMATION

Some Appearance options may limit other available style options for your button. For example, the "Link" selection does not use the "Outline" property.

  • Link will make the button appear as text only.

  • Pill will make the button appear with rounded ends.

  • Squared will make the button appear as a block.

# Custom Styling

NOTE
Custom Styling will only use the Normal button Appearance shape; and, there are no Default Styling options available. The two "styles" are independent of one another.

Changing to the Custom Styling option opens a selection of Color Picker panels to adjust the colors of the button independently and specifically for the button being edited.
