Try CMD-clicking the 'T' objects then changing the appearance in the inspector.
Thanks for your response. However it didn't answer the query.
What is desired is to "expose" all pertinent Grouped Button's "T", then with one Command Click the "Ts", as in FM15, and then apply universal formatting to selected.
In screen grab above all the buttons need modification, currently as far as I can figure it has to be done on one by one basis. Thus the query.
yes, and if you cmd click all the 'T's you will be able to select them all without selecting the grouped button element. Once they are all selected, you may then change all the formatting at once.
I have tried your suggestion several times.
Cmd clicking to select the "Ts" does not work.
Gradient changes will be applied to the 1st "T" in the Stack only, the one with the "eye".
MacOs 10.12.5 & FMAv16
There must be some System Key Combo that is not allowing me to match your results.
The original buttons were created from a Text element with Fill & Line values applied.
With that said I punted and recreated the buttons from the Header's Button or Popover Button tool. Much faster than individually correcting each.

After further ruminating on your last response and my workaround “solution” I now see the disconnect between our points of view.
My original query was:
Based on Typing a Text Block and then applying a gradient background, perimeter line values and Text color I now have the “T” element as you have illustrated. If I had stopped there, I could then Command-click on it and other similar text blocks and adjust all at once.
However, once a Text Block had a “Button Format” applied it now was a “Grouped Button” and as such each “T” had to be individually selected in-order to modify it, Command-click on a bunch of "T"s was no longer available.
Thus my initial query.
