Change the Hotspot selected area-answer indicator?

Hello Heroes,

When using the Hotspot.. I have 2 questions...

1-I have unchecked the "show hand cursor on hover" and the hand is still showing....?

And

2-Is there a way to change the selection indicator? once clicked, the selected hotspot area is marked with a swirling black and white cursor...and my client wishes to change this...

thanks!

J.

Hi Julie,

1. Are you using the hotspot quiz? If so, then the hand cursor will show over the entire slide, so that the user know they're supposed to click on something. If you're adding individual hotspots, then you have the option to hide the hand cursor, this is helpful for hotspots that may be triggered by a mouse roll over instead of a click - so that the user does not believe they have to click on anything.

2. I don't believe you can remove that marker, as that lets the user know where they selected. Although, I have seen at least one example where the user created a workaround, and as within that thread you're welcome to submit a feature request for the ability to remove/change it.

Hello, re-booting this issue-- is there now some way to show/hide that spinner wheel for hotspot selection? The layers workaround doesn't work because it doesn't let us use the other default hotspot features we need for quick development. Lots of work to do here and these workarounds cost more time than we can afford or teach a whole team of newbies to do. And the spinner is confusing end-user clients, who keep thinking it means the computer has stalled, which is its most common meaning.
