Change the State of a Hotspot?

I created a slide where users are supposed to click on one of three hotspots for the correct answer.  However, I do not want those hotspots to be active until the audio completes.  When I click on each hot spot, however, there is no option to change the state. Is it not possible to change the state of hotspots?

If not, is there another way to do this - make the hot spots inactive until the media completes?

Hi Tom,

Since you're already done this with hotspots, one way to achieve this is to

  • put the audio on a separate layer - say we call it audio
  • Add a trigger to hide this layer when the media completes
  • hide the hotspots on this layer
  • back on the base layer, add a trigger to show the audio layer when the timeline starts

In the future, you might try using transparent shapes instead of hot spots, since shapes CAN have states.

Any question, please shout out!
