Button Sizes

The 'safe' area around buttons in DVD Architect menu's seem excessive. Is there a way to reduce the 'buffer' area for a chapter button? For example, a link to a chapter play-point using the 'image only' option places a thumbnail of the video clip on the screen, but there is a white box indicating the 'active' area for a mouse click that is way bigger. Can I slim it down?

If you move the little nodes on the frame, you can resize it to some degree, but at some point it will start shrinking the image. You cannot override this nor should you.

I noticed that I can delete the 'text' box individually (must do this before switching the button style to 'image only' or the text portion remains but is ghosted) and that improves the disparity markedly. Multiple buttons can them be displayed comfortably close to each other.

Also, on another page I noticed there was a default mask added to the button when I created it. Removing the mask helped slim the buffer zone.
