Button presets are of two types filled and outlined. You’ll get four preset styles under the filled and outlined button.
- No border-radius button
- 5px border-radius button
- 30px border-radius button
- 5px border-radius with an icon button
The design is the same for the outlined button.
Let’s check the presets design one by one.
The content area gives you the option to add an icon to the button.
Here, we’ve changed the previous icon and added a new one.
You can set the icon position from after to before the content.
You can insert your Amazon affiliate product link to the button on the right as well as change the other link settings.
Under the style settings, you’ll get different essential design options.
The options are:
- Box shadow

Manage icon style
In the Style > Icon area, you’ll get a couple of settings to manage the icon size, spacing and color.
If you want to check the background color of the button, you can go to the Style > Background area.
Here, we’ve added a new linear gradient background color in the hover option.
Note: We like the transparent background in the normal mode so we kept the default color. But you can change it if you would like to.
The Style > Border area gives you multiple options to add and customize the border of the button in your own way.
Box shadow style
The Spectra button block comes with several presets to add box shadow. You can use these presets to add a lucrative box shadow to the button.
