Greg's Buttons gives your buttons and scroll bars a make over. Instead of drab-looking one-dimensional buttons, now you have 3D buttons that actually push in when you click on them.

In addition, you get background colors for your windows. Greg's Buttons can even replace the standard system font that is used in menu bars.

Here are some key features of "Gregs Buttons":
Replaces the standard flat black and white push buttons, check boxes, and radio buttons with tasteful 3D color ones. These buttons are designed to complement the windows and scroll bars in System 7, and in particular, they use the color tinges from the Color control panel. You can choose from three styles of push buttons and four styles each of radio buttons and check boxes. There is also an option to draw the text of push buttons using an embossed style.
Substitutes a font of your choice (chosen from two variants each of Helvetica, Palatino, Espi, and Tecton, as well as Veritas, which is based on Apple's Truth/Charcoal font) for Chicago as your system font.
Lets you select the background color of dialog boxes, menus (both the text and background colors), and Finder windows.
Colors the mini icons in Finder list views (i.e., view by name, etc.). This is the smallest icon size you can select in the Views control panel. This feature works only with Systems 7.0, 7.0.1, and 7.1.
Colorizes the stop sign, caution, and note alert icons.

What's New:
Added Veritas 12 to the "Substitute System Font" list. This font is based on Apple's Truth (aka Charcoal) font, which is rumored to be the new system font under Mac OS 8.
