Point Hotspot Properties

The hotspot properties are found in the Properties Pane and will appear once a hotspot is added or selected.

ID – The ID of the Hotspot which can be used in the Skin Editor.

Skin-ID – Use this ID to connect this hotspot to a hotspot template. For example, if there is a hotspot template called, wiki, and you would like a point hotspot to take that template’s characteristics, you would enter, wiki, in this field.

Title – Add the title of the hotspot here. This title will be visible (e.g. tooltip) when the mouse pointer hovers over the hotspot.

Description – Enter a description of the hotspot here or text for an information pop-up box. If you plan to use an information hotspot template, the description would appear in the info pop-up box.

Link Target Type – Choose what the hotspot will do. What you choose here will affect the Link Target URL below.

  • URL - Enter the website URL or file name of a node (i.e. park_one.swf).

  • Tour Node - Pro - Choose a node from the menu to link to other nodes in a tour.

  • Image - Click the folder icon to navigate to an image. Clicking on the Image hotspot will result in opening the image.

  • Info - Select to add tooltip information or link to an element in the skin editor using a Hotspot Proxy ID. You can use one of the info pop-up components that are built in to the Skin Editor. See: Adding an Information Pop-up Box.

Link Target URL – The options here will depend on your Link Target Type choice. If you’ve chosen,

  • URL - Enter the web or path URL to the node.

  • Tour Node - Pro - Choose a node from the menu. Click the green arrow to open the linked node.

  • Image - Click the folder icon to navigate to the image.

  • Info - Link this hotspot with an element in the skin editor or simply add your tooltip text to the Title field above. You can use basic HTML tags.

Target – Add a target to specify where to open the website (or panorama).

★ Note: If using the Pro version and Tour Node is selected as the Link Target Type, click the bullseye icon to orient the opening view of the next panorama (Target Viewing Parameters).

★ Tip: You can also enter the Pan, Tilt, and Field of View information in this field. This will override the default view settings in viewing parameters of the target node. Enter the parameters separated by forward slashes (/), e.g. 324.0/-3.5/70.0.

  • Target Viewing Parameters - This window will appear after you click the bullseye icon. Simply rotate the panorama to the desired opening view and click OK when you’re done.
