Hyperlinks in Marker Text

Nov 29, 2012

I'd like to include a hyperlink within my marker text.  I've no trouble adding it, but when I view the published slide I'm unable to click the link because the marker text box closes when I roll my mouse over to the link.  Any ideas?

Hi Maggie,

If you deactivate the "Show all on hover" option, the user needs to click on the marker to show the details.

That way, you can reach and click the hyperlink. You then have to click again the marker to close it, or click anywhere else.

Is that something that could work for you?

Have a nice day!

Hi Sonal,

Thanks for reaching out and sharing that you're experiencing difficulty with a hyperlink within your marker.

Our team is looking into an issue where hyperlinks in the marker header text area don't work correctly, but hyperlinks within the body text area should work fine. Does this sound like what you are experiencing as well?

Hi Leslie,

My hyperlink is in the marker text box and it doesn't work no matter what I do. The same hyperlink works outside the text box. Screenshot attached for your reference. (the hyperlink is in blue)

Is this something you guys are working on or should it be working?

Look forward to hearing from you.

Hello Sonal,

I cannot see the image you've shared here. Did you reply via email? That does not allow attachments to populate in the forums.

I've created a small sample with a single marker to show you what I described above with Header vs. Body text. You can check the published link here and the project file is attached.

The triggers will also indicate where your hyperlink has been added:

If you still need assistance, I want to take a look at your project file to investigate what's happening with your permission. You can share it publicly here or send it to me privately by uploading it here. I'll delete it when I'm done troubleshooting.
