Markers & hyperlinks

Jan 08, 2017

Hi, is it possible to add an image to a Marker that is a hyperlink?
Can that hyperlink be a page in the current Story.html ?

Hello Yael!

There isn't a built-in way to add a hyperlink to an image within a Marker, but Steve Flowers suggested a workaround in this thread you might want to try:

1) Start by creating your marker. Add your image to the marker. 

2) Approximate where you want the hotspot to overlay the marker and draw a shape or hotspot on the stage (not in the marker.)

3) Add a trigger to this shape. Make it transparent if it's not a hotspot.

4) Cut the object from the base slide (CTRL-X)

5) Edit the states of your marker. Add a selected state to your marker. Paste your shape into the new state.

Now your marker will open (your shape will be there at the start of the state and won't wait for the animation to finish) and the shape will transmit the trigger action when clicked. This click will also trigger the close of your marker. This might be a drawback.
