Updatemenus buttons bgcolor not working

I am trying to restyle the buttons on my plot, but there seems to be a bug preventing me from changing the “bgcolor” property if the type of an updatemenus object is “buttons”. See the codepen here for reference: https://codepen.io/dbhathena/pen/yZJbye - if you uncomment line 20, the button changes to a “buttons” type, but the background color goes away. How can I fix this? Thanks in advance!

UPDATE: figured out why this wasn’t working: showactive: true for only one button in the menu means that that button will always be shown as active. Setting it to false fixed the issue.

Now I have a new problem: is there any way to change the background color when hovering over the button?

Not at the moment, unfortunately.
