I'm currently using version 2019.0.8 on windows and would love, if the hotspot feature could be previewd during the production of a file, not just AFTER the production is done and the video is exported. That would make things alot easier!

I can preview a URL hotspot by using "Test". And it opens my browser to the webpage.

Or pause at end using a time code can be tested.

Are you looking for something else?

Thanks fot the quick resoonse! That is what I tried, but the "test" button does nothing (I am trying to stop the video at, the URL link is not relevant for me at the moment). According to the TechSmith Support, it does not work until I export the complete file.

The "pause/stop at" can not be tested pre export.

You can test it by making a selection of the hotspot area and then just produce just that selection. It produces fairly quick.

Make a selection just beyond either side of the hotspot area and then right-click on the selection and do a "Produce Timeline Selection As"
