Step 3 — You are able to change the text, which will be displayed on a button. Just move on to the Download Link Text field and change the text inside it (you can use the %size% macros if you want to showcase the size of the file in the label). In case the main title is not enough for you, there is also the Download Link Sub Text field, where you can type in a short piece of additional information (or you can still use the %size% macros in order to showcase the size of the file).

Content settings

Step 4 — Navigate to the Download Link Icon dropdown list, where you can select a decorative element (an icon) to add to the Download button.
