Hi

Can i add my own hotspots i.e. if i make my own black and white icon?

e.g. if i create my icon and put it in folder where other icons are, will if appear in Hotspot dropdown menu?

Can i add my own image hotspots? I see an Image option in the "Hotspot" dropdown.

If yes, is it possible to:

  • angle the image so it blends into background?
  • include a highlight on rollover effect e.g. for discovery type scenarios .... then click to view info 

Should i be referring to new relase as CP 2019 or CP 11?

Thanks

Donal.

You can add a custom image as hotspot. However you cannot get it from the Library and I don't think a thumbnail hotspot will be added.  I tried such custom hotspots, but you really need to create them exactly with size and look needed, no way to edit in CP. Use a graphics application to do so. Same with blending: use a PNG, can be partially transparent.

Both CP2019 and version 11 will be used, same as for the previous version CP2017 or version 10.
