I've just started on Revolution, but I'll hazard an answer based on
my Hypercard experience.  If Rev works differently here, I'm sure
someone will jump on me.

If the auto-lite of a button is true (in HC), then poking that
button deselects whatever is selected.  Try turning off the
auto-hilite of the button.
