If you are using a color display, you have some X resources available to help make the state of those buttons look a little clearer. You can set these in your .Xdefaults file:
With these set, when the button is set to no, you will see a 3-d looking button with a center the same color as FrameMaker's overall background color. When the button is set to yes you see the selectColor (make it red or something so it's easy). When the button is in the third, unset position, the entire border is the topShadowColor (actually it looks like it's screened with the bottomShadowColor), so there is no 3-d and the button is neither in nor out.
An example of a color setup:
! ! My standard window colors -- white on dark navy blue ! *foreground: white *background: navy ! ! FrameMaker color defaults -- a bright medium blue background ! Buttons: light blue topShadow, dark navy bottomShadow, bright red select ! Maker*background: #238af5 Maker*selectColor: red Maker*topShadowColor: skyblue Maker*bottomShadowColor: NavyblueGlenn Little -- CSE Systems Support Group
