I am watching the webinars that I missed starting with the first one, point hotspots...btw, they are great! I have always given my hotspots a custom name but it appears from the video that when you drag a node to automatically create a hotspot, the text is created from the image filename. I don't get that when I try it. There is no text unless I create a custom title and it appears I have the same settings as on the video. I'm sure this is something simple I am missing but I would like to solve it. Thanks!

The user data is in the metadata of the input panoramas. Pano2VR can read this in and display it.
In one of the webinars I am asked about this and answer the question. I think it was in the last one...
I think but know it was asked in the Q&A at the end of whichever webinar it was.

Ah metadata, thank you. I assumed it took it from the file name. If it is in the Q&A on the webinars, then I will run across it.
