Text Button Problem. Help!

Hello -

I’m trying to teach myself flash and I ran into a little snafoo. I wrote text links in flash and then converted them into buttons. I programmed it so when you roll over the text, it changes color.

When I published it, I noticed that the mouse arrow has to be DIRECTLY over a part of the text in order for the link to work. Most of the time, the mouse goes in between the letters and I have to spend a couple seconds realigning the mouse. It’s very frustrating.

Is there any way to make the area in between the letters link as well?

Thank you so much!

Always -
