Create Engage Interaction without Seeing Markers

Hi All,

Sorry if this is a newbie question - I searched, but couldn't find similar type question/answer.

On my slide, I have 4 boxes. I want my user to be able to click on each of the boxes and have an action occur (such as open a web site, open a new e-mail using the mailto: command, etc.).

I saved the slide background as a graphic, and I was thinking that the labeled graphic Engage interaction would be the correct way to approach creating this type of interaction. But when I create the Engage interaction, the user has to click on a marker and then click on the hyperlink in the window that pops up. Is there a way to create an Engage interaction without the user seeing the Markers that I place on top of each of the boxes in the graphic?

I want them to think they are clicking on the box itself and that click triggers the event. I don't want them to click on the marker and then have to click a second time on the hyperlink in the Is there a way to do that (with or without using Engage)?

Thanks, Phil.

It actually was as simple as adding the hyperlinks to my original PowerPoint on the graphic boxes. For some reason, I thought those would be lost in the publishing to Flash. But it works great! No need to use Engage to enable simple hyperlinking or open a new e-mail using mailto:.

I should have tried that before posting
