PIP & Hotspots_Camtasia 9

Is it possible to click a hotspot to open a PIP then click the same hotspot to close the PIP? We are creating a series of videos containing a list of hotspots that the viewer can click to open a PIP that would provide a detailed image or video.

I have used the marker option with the hotspots to open a PIP but cannot figure out how to close the same PIP and return to the background that contains the hotspot list. See attached image of the timeline.

After the viewer has clicked through all the hotspots list and viewed all the detail images we want to have him/her move onto the next section of the video.

I have created a test video that is posted to Screencast.com -

Unfortunately for some reason this video will not play in Chrome (Version 60.0.3112.101 (Official Build) (64-bit)) and only in FF (56.0.2 (64-bit)) at present.

Thanks for your thoughts.

I viewed your video in Chrome; the hotspots worked per the project layout

have you considered using stop-at-end, jump-to-URL hotspots that open in a new tab/window?

closing the new [PIP]browser window would leave you back where the original hotspots are

otherwise, put a go-to-time hotspot on the PIP image that would take the viewer back to the hotspots
