Hi Sue,

One option could be to add a rectangle over the applicable word and then set the outline to 'no outline' and the fill to 100% transparent - it needs to be 100% transparent as 'no fill' wont make the rectangle clickable.

You could then add a hover state to the rectangle that displays a pop-up with the definition in it?

I rarely use hotspots and this is my preferred method because you can have the added functionality of visited state.  I just didn't think it was needed here.  great explanation of no-fil vs transparency.

You can also hyperlink the word though this will put an underline under it. This is useful if you expect to have further text edits to your content before a final version is ready because the "link" moves with the word, unlike using hotspots or transparent retangles. To hyperlink a word, just highlight it and then right-click to bring up the contextual menu. You'll see the Hyperlink option where you can specify your layer and tell it to happen on mouseover.
