Pano2VR 5 beta5 64bit
Strange issue with a timer:
I need activate timer after clicking on popup image (ht_image)
Timer is added to skin. Timeout set to 0, Type "init", repeat "One time"

So I add action for ht_image:
Source: Mouse Click
Action: Set Value
Parameter: 3
Target: Timer 1

Also I placed some SVG as a test button and add the same actions for activating timer

Clicking on ht_image all works except activating timer. Clicking on test SVG button activates timer as expected.
I tried to change order with actions in ht_image, placing timer to the top but it can't help.
Why HT_IMAGE click can't activate the timer?

Its an issue with the Set Value action when used in a hotspot template.
You can use a node marker or container and then use hotspot proxy ID.

Please see attached project, key elements that make this work:
Hotspot ID = pop
Node Marker with ID trigger has the hotspot proxy ID = pop
The Timer opens and closes the popup as well as setting blank text to unload the image.
The Hotspot Template has the Set Value action to show the requires popup Image.

Thank you, Hopki!
Your trick is working. By the way, I saw placeholder $r in ht_image actions.
This placeholder is absent in List of Placeholders and System Placeholders
By testing I found $r = images folder name.
