Setting up the Text Box[edit]

  2. In the Text Element Properties, enter an asterisk (*) in the Hotspot Proxy ID field.

Now when the mouse pointer enters a hotspot, the wild card (*) in the Hotspot Proxy ID will activate the actions in the text box and will cause the text box to show, while the $hs placeholder will display the hotspot's title.
