Now click on your button making sure it is selected. And choose your Effect panel again. It should still be open, but if it's not just select Window and Effect from your top menu in Fireworks. Now double click on the effect OuterBevel from your Effects window and this will open the parameters window. Here you can change the look of your button in the over position to whatever you want it to look like. I have chosen Framed, and a different color for my bevel. As shown below.
This gives your button the effect of sinking in when you mouse over the button plus it highlights the outer edge. Just looks pretty neat. Here you can also change the fill color of the button by selecting the fill tab and or change the text color by highlighting the text and so on. There are many things you can alter. Now you can simply close this window and it will return you to the main canvas.
