How to get Text as a button instead of an icon

Post by sulpherdragon » Wed Jun 18, 2008 6:58 pm

If you use the Icon ive attached, it allows you to use the Name of the Button as text on your Add-On Buttons panel instead of an Icon.

Enjoy :D

Its an icon with broken image data injected into it. Therefore, Avant (probably based on libraries that Anderson used or as a failsafe/testing measure) displays text instead of the icon.
Im not quite sure of the mechanics behind it, thats why ive dubbed it the Magic Icon :)

I like this, too. Maybe it should be in the othe forum, though. It is a "button," after all.
