Hotspot editor

The hotspot editor enables you to define "clickable areas" in your graphics and associate all the different types of hyperlinks with them that are supported by H+M. When the user clicks on the hotspot area in the graphic it is exactly the same as clicking on a hyperlink of the same type in the topic text.

The parameters of the different kinds of hotspot hyperlinks are exactly the same as those for normal hyperlinks. For details see Links, Anchors, Macros, Scripts and HTML and Graphics with hotspots, macros and scripts.
