This article will help you understand what Image hotspots are, and how to use image hotspots in your content.
Hotspots are an idea for when you would like to have a background image and designate text overlaid on top of the image as hyperlinks to other topics, items in the project or even internal URL's. For example picture a floor plan of a house with each room labeled (kitchen, hallway, closet...etc). Clicking on the label would act as a hyperlink to different topic for that room.
In order to add a new hotspot:
- Add an image to your content;
- Right click on the image and select one of the "Add ... Hotspot" commands (rectangle, ellipse, polygon);
- Use the mouse cursor to select the area you wish to turn into a clickable link
- On the link designer dialog, specify the target for the hotspot (use a link url of "#" on the "Link to a web page or other internet url" page on the link designer if you don't want the hotspot to link anywhere);
- Type the caption you want to appear when the user hovers the mouse in the "Link Caption" field on the link designer.
- Click OK and the new hotspot will be added.
