HI. Is it possible to have two interactive hotspots on the same media? In my scenario I imported a PowerPoint slide that is added to the end of the timeline. I've added one interactive hotspot to the slide and set it to 'pause at end' but I would also like to add another hotspot so that they can click a link on that slide to link to another related video file.  Is this possible?  Thanks, Marion

Absolutely. The only thing you would want to avoid would be to have the hotspots overlap. Because that could be really confusing. But as long as they are in discrete locations, you should be good.

Note that there are two ways to add hotspots.

1. Use the Visual Effects Option.

Click Images to Enlarge:



With this option though you can only add one hotspot to the media.

To add a second or more hotspots you need to use the hotspot option in the Annotations options



You can just use the Annotations method for all the hotspots if you wish.

Thanks for keeping this old soul on its toes! I had all but forgotten about the method using Visual Effects!

I didn't realize there was a second option in the Annotations section.  Will give this a try.
Thanks!
