Hotspot Image

At the heart of the Hotspot module lies the significance of the Main Image—a canvas that serves as the cornerstone for the entire interactive narrative. This primary image dictates the positions and arrangements of all hotspot items, dictating the visual choreography that unfolds for users. Let's delve into the pivotal role that the Main Image plays in shaping the user experience within this module.
The Main Image acts as the visual anchor, determining the spatial coordinates of each hotspot item. Every element, from spot icons to images and text, finds its place on this canvas, creating a cohesive and harmonious composition. The Main Image is not just a backdrop; it is the stage upon which your interactive story unfolds.
All hotspot items align themselves with the features and landmarks within the Main Image. The positions are intricately connected to the visual cues present in this central canvas, ensuring that users seamlessly navigate through the interactive elements, fostering a sense of intuitive exploration.


Tooltip Settings

The Tooltip Settings within the Hotspot module offer a plethora of customization options, transforming your interactive narrative into a finely tuned and user-centric experience. Let's unravel the key points that define the dynamics of tooltips, shaping the way users engage with your content.

1. Use Tooltip Switch:

At the heart of tooltip functionality lies the Use Tooltip switch. When activated, tooltips come to life, providing additional information upon interaction with hotspot items. Conversely, when turned off, tooltips gracefully step aside, allowing users to explore without the intrusion of informational overlays.

2. Arrow Switch:

The Arrow Switch introduces a visual cue to hotspot items. When activated, arrows gracefully guide users, indicating the direction of the associated tooltip. This subtle addition enhances the user experience, providing intuitive navigation and orientation within the interactive canvas.

3. Tooltip Placement and Animation Styles:

Customization reaches new heights with the ability to strategically position tooltips in 12 different places empowering users to finely tune the placement of informational overlays. The visual allure of tooltips reaches new heights with a curated selection of six animation styles, infusing a dynamic and engaging dimension to the unveiling of information.

4. Trigger Options:

The trigger options dictate the user interaction required to reveal tooltip content. Choose between hover and click triggers based on your design intent. Hover triggers activate tooltips upon cursor hover, seamlessly integrating information into the user's exploration. On the other hand, click triggers offer a deliberate interaction, ensuring tooltips appear only upon a user's intentional click on a hotspot item.

5. Hover Over Tooltip:

The Hover Over Tooltip switch introduces an additional layer of control. Activate this switch to enable or disable the tooltip hover area, allowing you to define whether tooltips appear when the cursor hovers over the item. The Tooltip Content Hide Delay complements this feature, determining how long tooltips persist after the cursor leaves the hotspot item.

6. Follow Cursor Switch:

For a dynamic and fluid experience, the Follow Cursor Switch allows tooltips to move with the cursor, revealing content precisely where the user's attention is focused. This feature enhances engagement, making the tooltip content an extension of the user's exploration.

7. Max-Width:

Fine-tune the visual aesthetics of tooltips with the Max-Width setting, defining the maximum width that tooltips can occupy. This ensures that tooltips maintain an optimal size, balancing information density with a visually pleasing presentation.

8. Tooltip Distance Switch:

Within this setting, two distinct options, Tooltip Arrow Move, and Tooltip Distance, provide nuanced control. Tooltip Arrow Move creates a defined distance between the hotspot item and the arrow, ensuring a visually appealing layout. Tooltip Distance, on the other hand, specifies the overall distance from the hotspot item to the tooltip content, allowing for precise placement and spacing.
