Maintain state of button when selected
Maintain the state of a Button when it is selected to show the user that the button has been pressed. Currently, when the Button is selected, it only briefly changes state and then returns to default.
For example, when the button is pressed and it is designated to fill grey when selected, the Buttons fill only momentarily turns grey, and then returns to default. The state of the selected formatting should remain when the Button is pressed.

This needs to be a thing. The workaround is painful.
Agree. This is a good feature to have which will help to make the reports/ dashboards more visually interactive

We can use hide/unhide feature from the selection panel, along with bookmarks. It's inconvenient, but works.
Do we have any workaround for this kind of issue?
I have to have double the amount of buttons needed when creating bookmarks to show the user which bookmark they have selected. It wouldn't be so bad, but the alignment and snapping/resizing widths makes this all extremely difficult to work with.

I'm currently having to have two sets of each button with one set visible and set to the colors I need for one bookmark, and the other set visible and set to the colors I need for the other bookmark. Should not be so difficult!
yes, truely this feature needs to corrected ASAP.
This needs to be added. It is easy to get around by creating a selected and un-selected button and changing if it is visualized by the bookmark. Should not have to go through this much trouble to make a clean looking report.
+1 Agreed that for it to be a simple, intuitive interface for end users, buttons need to retain their concept of "state" so users know what is currently selected

This is particularly an issue when using the buttons as a toggle on a report. The user does not know which view they are looking at because there is no visibility into what button is selected. The work around is that we change the title of the graph based on the button selection, but that is not obvious enough.
