Hi,
some time ago I reported this problem.
http://gardengnomesoftware.com/forum/vi ... arty#p6350

There are several point hotspots in pano with title text box.
In some hotspots the text box does not cover the image of hotspot placed close to the title text box.

Some are OK and some NOT.

Thomas, any chance to fix it?

Nope, this can not be fixed with my current structure because Flash (and Skin) objects are structured as trees. You can avoid this by moving the hotspots apart or make a "left text" and "right text" hotspot template.

Hi Thomas
Working on a project, and need some help. :D
I want to set a position of self, to a Text Box, to a custom hotspot image. :wink:

So in a Hotspot Template, or an image on the hotspot, say an arrow, have the action of

Mouse Enter, Set Element Posistion-$self, Text Box
Mouse Enter, Show Element, Text Box
Mouse Leave, Hide Element, Text Box
Mouse Enter, Set Text-$hs, Text Box

What I want to achieve is when you hover over the point hotspot the text box will be become visible at the location of the hotspot and display the correct text.

I am looking into the problem with labels and hotspot images. If this could work the label could be placed at the bottom of the tree in the skin editor so the label will always be in front of all of the hotspot images.

It does seem that as the hotspot is not a fixed element, when clicked on the label returns to home position and can not find the hotspot. :?

Just a thought
