Hello Community,

is it possible to assign two actions to one hotspot in a Captivate VR project? I'd love to create a hotspot which both displays text and plays a sound upon clicking it.

If I create a hotspot which displays a text, there's an option to add sound in the features bar, too, but this sound will only be triggered via timing (not by clicking).

Thank you for your expertise and time.

Best regards,
Robert

Maybe some one else has an idea, but my feeling is that this not possible (yet). The list with actions triggered by hotspots is very limited. It is not possible to mark part of the text as hypelink, which would make your goal possible.  You can get out of the VR (not in a VR project but in a normal proect with 360 slides) but I couldn't find a way to return to the VR slide in the state it was when you left it..

I just started a new VR project and faced the same dilemma. To work around the limitations of Captivate, I used Camtasia to combine still photos with the desired audio into a set of mp4 video files. Once combined, I could point hotspots to the videos (which were small in size because they only showed a still image). It added some extra steps to the workflow, but achieved the desired result.
