  2. Double-click anywhere within the Viewer to add a point hotspot. A red target, will appear representing this point.

    ★ The current hotspot (that is being edited) is red and its settings can be edited in the Properties. A non-active hotspot is blue.

Drag to Add

You can also drag videos, YouTube URLs, Vimeo URLs, images and website URLs into the Viewer to add a point hotspot. Each element will be recognized appropriately and the correct information applied.

For example, if you drag in a YouTube URL, the hotspot type will be recognized as a video as well as its source. The Title will be the video’s title and the Link Target URL will be automatically added.
