How to use Buttons for selections?

Hi, 

1. My dimension is "Animals" 

2. The two options are 'Frog' and 'Toad'

How do I make two buttons, one for frog, one for toad. I have a table that needs to filter based on the buttons. 

I've tried a lot of things in the 'Action and Navigation' pane but I can't figure it out.

It worked! Thanks.

However, oddly, the label won't change! 

Ohhhhhhhhh. Now I see the label change is not there but in "Appearance". Any idea why it has a label option in "Actions and Navigation"? 

Also - under "font styling" even if I change the font size that change is not reflected in my button. I want my font to be just as large as the word "Button" was. Any ideas what to do? Is there a way to ensure 'text wrapping'? Maybe that will make the font larger? (I was only using 'frog' and 'toad' as made up examples)

Hi all, is there any way to change the color of the buttons? 

I will have three buttons:

Animals

Frogs

Toads

 

I would like the Animals button to be a different color (since it will show the data from "frogs + toads")
