Prevent mouse pointer changing to hand
I hope this isn't as daft a post as my last one!.
In a simulation, I have screens where, to add authenticity, I have placed a series of rectangles each covering a menu option and each with a normal (100% transparent) and hover (75% transparent) state. The states are changed as the user moves the mouse over the options highlighting the hovered over option (as it does in the actual application). One rectangle also has click event to move the story onto the next slide. Becasue there is an action event, the cursor changes from a pointer to a hand. How can I prevent this?
I have tried hot spots with the 'show hand cursor in hover' option switched off (no states), placing a hotspot over the rectangle stops the' mouse over' working and vice versa stops the click event from working.
Any ideas please?
