So I noticed that the Silhouette skin comes with image hotspot template (ht_image) and image_popup container which has external popup_image inside of it. I also noticed that the ht_image template has some actions configured which show the image_popup container as well as the external popup_image and also show and hide other elements (e.g. controller and screentint). However, what does the set value on mouse-click action do? It has the $r$hu placeholder and targets popup_image. Does this action connect the ht_image template in the skin editor with the image hotspots I define in the main panorama editor?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Grzesiek_R,
When you set an image hotspot you use the blue icon to select the image it will open, the image is copied to the images folder in the output.
The path to the image is now in the Link Target URL of that hotspot.

The placeholders $(r)$(hu) creates a link to the Link Target URL, so when you click the hotspot it copies the file path to the image to the external loader.
The placeholder $(r) helps locate the image in say Wordpress.
