I have a horizontal site navigation which is made up of buttons, how do I widen the individual buttons as the text does not fit and I don't want to make the text any smaller?

I answered your question earlier but after going to my site I was messing around with different nav bars. You can build a nav bar one button at a time. Go to "Elements" then to "nav bars" then choose "button" from the top right . Each button can be as wide as you want. Each time you add another button it clicks into line with the others. Click on the button you want to make wider and when you see the white marks at the end of the button click one side until you see an arrow and then right click and hold down to stretch it out to accommodate your text, Go to STYLE to change the back ground and text color of your buttons. You can have a dark background and white text or reverse or what ever you want. Use bold (B) and a simple font (sans serif) so your text is easier to read. If you have a lot of pages this could use up a lot of space on your pages for each nav bar. I use a grid nav bar which is small and throws the menu up on the right side when clicked on your published site, A lot of sites are using the grid nav bar now so ppl know what it is. I put a tiny eyeball beside mine just in case there is any question.

Ohhhhhh so happy it helped you. The new site builder takes a while to understand but it is far superior to the old. You can build a great site easily after you get it figured out. Good luck.
