Maximum Nunber of Image Hotspots

Unread postby Olivier Beltrami » Wed Jan 16, 2019 7:27 am

Hi,

Is there a limit to the number of hotspots on an image ?
Whenever I try to add more than 8, and save, only 8 are there when I reopen the hotspot editor.

Very best regards,

Olivier

Hi Olivier,

There is definitely no limit like this; within reason you can add as many hotspots as you like. If you can reproduce this in a small demo project please mail it to me with the associated image at support AT ec-software.com (replace the AT with @) and I'll have a look at it.

Hi Tim,

I found the problem.

One of the hotspots was extending slightly beyond the edge of the image and, when H&M fixed that issue, it did so by moving almost all the hotspots to the same position (on top of each other).

On a related matter, is there a plan to replace the dropdown list of topics in the hotspot editor by an edit field (like when creating a link with CTRL-L) where we can simply paste the topic ID ? With large projects (2000+ topics) this dropdown list is not very convenient.

Very best regards,

Olivier

Hi Olivier,

Good to hear you found the cause, I'm passing this on to our developers as an FYI. 8)

Good suggestion. That's very easy to achieve: You just need to make the combobox control editable instead of being just a plain list. It's simply a matter of a setting in the control. I'm passing that along as well.

Hi Olivier,

The issue that caused your hotspot problem is fixed in the current pre-release version of 7.4.2:

https://www.helpandmanual.com/download/ ... p-v742.exe

This also makes the combobox for the topic ID selection in the hotspot editor editable so that you can enter a topic ID manually. 8)

One small glitch; I am not able to paste into the Topic ID field.
