Hi, I have managed to create an action that triggers an animation when hovering on a button, which is a text.

The hover has effect only if the mouse is on the text. If the cursor is within the area of the text, but doesn't touch the font, for instance the space between two letters, the hover is not triggered.

Is there a way to keep a transparent text and having the hover being affected by a rectangular area, regardless if it is filled by the font or not?

Thanks in advance.

Make a button with only the hit area as a rectangle and put it over your text. The button will automatically be transparent.

In the past the rectangle would have shown as transparent blue but it does not anymore.

You can put this button in your text  movieclip or you can just put it over the movieclip outside of it.

In anycase, give this button an instance name and address the button instead of the movieclip.

I hope this makes sense.
