    I use bootstrap and imported all there less files in my own less file. Everything is working, but now I want to overwrite some values of buttons.less, and that is not working.

    I importes buttons.less (original), and below that I put my own version of it:

    @import "bootstrap/less/buttons.less"; Note: see import ac-buttons.less
    // Base styles
    // --------------------------------------------------
    // Core
    .btn {
      display: inline-block;
      padding: 4px 12px;
      margin-bottom: 0; // For input.btn
      font-size: @baseFontSize;
      line-height: @baseLineHeight;
      text-align: center;
      vertical-align: middle;
      cursor: pointer;
      .buttonBackground(@btnBackground, @btnBackgroundHighlight, @grayDark, 0 1px 1px rgba(255,255,255,.75));
      border: 0; // CHANGED FROM 1px solid @btnBorder;
      *border: 0; // Remove the border to prevent IE7's black border on input:focus
      border-bottom-color: darken(@btnBorder, 10%);
      .ie7-restore-left-whitespace(); // Give IE7 some love
      .box-shadow(none); // CHANGED FROM .box-shadow(~"inset 0 1px 0 rgba(255,255,255,.2), 0 1px 2px rgba(0,0,0,.05)");
      // Hover/focus state
      &:focus {
        color: @grayDark;
        text-decoration: none;
        background-position: 0 -15px;
        // transition is only when going to hover/focus, otherwise the background
        // behind the gradient (there for IE<=9 fallback) gets mismatched
        .transition(background-position .1s linear);
      // Focus state for keyboard and accessibility
      &:focus {
      // Active state
      &:active {
        background-image: none;
        outline: 0;
        .box-shadow(none); // CHANGED FROM .box-shadow(~"inset 0 2px 4px rgba(0,0,0,.15), 0 1px 2px rgba(0,0,0,.05)");
      // Disabled state
      &[disabled] {
        cursor: default;
        background-image: none;
    // Set the backgrounds
    // -------------------------
    .btn-primary {
        .buttonBackground(@btnPrimaryBackground, @btnPrimaryBackgroundHighlight);

    What I did, I copied the whole part, and actually only changer border to 0. But for some reason this is not being picked up correctly.

    Hope somebody can help me.
