Hotspots

  • Question
  • Updated 2 months ago
I'm new to Camtasia and cannot get hotspots to work.  Here are some details.
1.  Camtasia 2018 for Mac2.  I created a hotspot using an arrow callout.
3.  I left it at the default setting of pause at end - click to continue
4.  I exported the video as local files in two versions:  MP4 and MP4 (Main Concept)

What I want to do is present the student with a couple of questions.  It should pause with a question and graphic and then the student would click the answer arrow to continue.
It basically just doesn't work for me.

Thanks for any help.

Hi Aaron, video files such as MP4 don't have any mechanism to include the features you're trying to use.


I think the web page export is the only one that works that way, try that one.

Hi Jack,

Thanks for the suggestion.  I'll give that a try.  That makes total sense now that I think about it.

I tried exporting as a webpage and it worked, but not in Safari.
