"mouse over" on transparent objects doesn't work

Jul 24, 2013

I made an interactive poster (see attached). In the last layer I placed several transparent rectangels and defined some mouse hover triggers for them. The problem is that the triggers don't work. BUT when I give the rectangels a filling color (instead of "no fill") - it works! 

What am I doing wrong?

Brett is correct - shapes do need a fill for the mouseover to work.

Personally, I would stick with using the shapes you already have rather than hotspots here - hotspots create their own triggers which you have already applied to your shapes.

As you have said Yair, shapes with 'no fill' applied allow the user to click through the shape rather than click on it. Instead, fill the shape with a colour and then set the colour to 100% transparent.
