i am new to the hotspot feature, i looked discarded this as a usefull tool when i dindt know when i was doing when devloping service manuals. My questions for single document hotspoting are.

  • Can put a hotspot on a master page that links back to table of contents for instance 
  • can i use the hotspot feature for connecting content within 1 document if the document is compiled using mostly disconnected pages?

Thanks

Are you talking about hyperlinks in text or on images? If you are talking about text links, yes you should be able to do it. If you provide more details, we can probably give you more help. Thanks.

It depends on the workflow.

In general, Master Pages can contain hypertext. I'm using it in a current project, where various MPs have header nav links to ToC, Index, Covers, etc. But my worflow target is PDF.

If HTML is the target, some MP content doesn't get rendered to output, at all. This may include MP graphics, and the term "hotspot" often refers to coordinate-mapped regions of graphical objects.

My end result is pdf, thanks for the information i will keep that in mind while constructing my service manuals. I have a little work ahead of me in figuring out what works best. What i am trying to do is construct side naivation bars for each section of the document. I want it to be as graphical and detailed as possible.
