I just checked the source code, and using the "Create HTML file(s)" button already places hotspots onto the smart images. The only problem is that no pin is visibly displayed on the web page (a future enhancement).

If your map image already has identification markers (e.g. room numbers), then maybe you don't "need" pins in order to find the clickable hotspots.

There is one small update I've put in today (not released yet), which will provide the description as a basic tooltip when you hover the hotspot - the formatting in the description won't work without further improvements to the tool.

V2.3 has been released

To help Merion

The map pins in smart images are now displayed as hollow map pins when generating HTML pages (only via "Create HTML file(s)", not any of the other output options).

The pin's name is also displayed when you hover over a pin, but this is currently restricted to displaying plain text. A future enhancement will allow bigger tooltips with all your HTML/other formatting displayed.

Wow, this is great!

I expected a simple list with all the text of the descriptions and maybe links. Actual image hotspots are way above expectation! Great job!

The only little complaint I could muster ist that

doesn't seem to work for me. I only get the name as mouseover, not the description or GM directions. Tested with internet explorer, firefox and chrome.
All the pins I tested with were unrevealed, if that makes any difference, but I did not check the "revealed only" option during export.

Thanks for that. I double-checked, and yes I'm only displaying the pin's name - not its full description.

Yes, I will be looking at it this week.

The basic tooltip was simple to implement, but it only supports basic text. It doesn't support any formatting.

This means I have to find a different way of displaying a more complex tooltip that allows all the formatting that you would expect :-)

Version 2.4 is available

The tooltip on smart images now contains the pin name, description and GM directions.

Fortunately, RW doesn't allow formatting in these sections either so the tooltip can remain quite simple.

The general format is (using ___ and --- as shown):

Quote:
___ pin name text ___

description text

--- GM DIRECTIONS ---

gm directions text

LWD should have you as an example of how maintenance and support of product is done.

The past is a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.

This tool is trivial compared to my former job writing air traffic control systems :-)
