Hi all, I'm dealing with a large amount of translation on software screens and one issue that gives me a headache is trying to squeeze translated text into a specific size on a button field. One solution would be the use of graphics so with that in mind I'm trying to create a more graphical button list. Has anybody been in the same situation and how did they overcome it. I have a couple of suggestions to start the ball rolling:

* Enter show an open door
* Exit show a closed door
