Legacy document. The Hotspot Editor was updated in version 3.0. See: Hotspot Editor (Object2VR)
You can add areas of interaction, called area hotspots to your object movies. They are not visible; except as tooltips on mouse overs.
Enable: Select this to "turn on" the hotspot editor.
Reuse Hotspots: If the hotspots you will be adding should be visible on every image, select the appropriate choice(s): Columns or/and Rows.
- A single-row project will only display Columns for hotspot reuse.
- A multi-row project will display both Columns and Rows for hotspot reuse.
Image: This menu will display a list of all the images available to draw hotspots.
- When both Columns and Rows are selected in Hotspot Reuse the menu will display, All. If none are chosen, the image numbers are displayed in the Image menu. If you have a multi-row project and selected either Columns or Rows, then the images that will not reuse the hotspot are displayed in the Image menu.
Title: Add the title of the hotspot. This title will be visible when the mouse pointer hovers over the hotspot.
Url: You can add a web URL or if you would like to open another panorama, place the file name of the panorama here. When the user clicks on the hotspot they will be directed to the site or image specified.
Target: Add a target to specify where to open the website or file.
Zoom: Zoom in to your image for easier placement of the hotspot.
