Preventing cursor changing to text selector from arrow on button text


#1

I have not used Axure in several years and starting again with version 10. This is basic but not obvious. What is the trick to preventing the cursor from changing to a text selector when hovering over text on buttons?

If the button has a click event, the cursor should stay as finger pointer.

Thanks!

For anyone coming across this, the hack is that the click event can be empty to disable the cursor change. So if you are running rapid prototypes and have stubbed buttons on a screen and are not setting up disabled etc (emphasis on “rapid”) but doing say global events where you expose visually where users are clicking during observational testing… just put an empty click event on the item.
