I have a few polygon hotspots that I am controlling by clicking buttons to show, and mouse entering and leaving the buttons to show and hide as well. I also have the option enabled that shows the polygon hotspot when i mouse over the area on the image. I have two questions.

At some points, mousing over the hotspot areas does not show the polygon hotspot. The hand cursor shows up but not the polygon hotspot. I am wondering if there is a way to reset this option so that the hotspot comes back when hovered over? I don't see anything in the logic of my buttons that would break this functionality so I'm also wondering why this is happening.

Additionally, is there a way to show a skin text element when I hover over polygon hotspot area?

The visibility of a polygon hotspot is controlled in the web output setting or by the skin.
In the web output, select the Hotspot tab

Then select Show Current.
As you mouse over a polygon hotspot only that one will show.

To have polygon hotspots interact with skin elements you need to look at Hotspot Proxy IDs.
Please see this page looking at a rectangle element: ... t-proxy-id
But it is the same for any other element that has the Hotspot Proxy ID field.

Time index 12:30 shows how to do this.
