"Touch down" button style limitation

I’d like to make a custom effect occur when a button is pressed (touch down). I created and uploaded separate graphics for touch down and touch up. But the built-in touch down effect is interfering with what I want to do. Is there any way to disable that effect?

I don’t want the touch down button to have a lighter appearance. I just want to switch background pictures.


I don’t know if that will help you
But you can use the image like a button

And when the image click change the background

And with some shadow it’s will look like a button

Thank you, I might switch to images. I already have the button design as a .png with a drop shadow so that’s an easy thing to test.


Unfortunately, image components don’t have a “touch down” or “touch up” event block. Only a “click” block. And the Any Component event block only has a “click” event.
