Editing hotspots

You can edit an image map's hotspots to change their shape, color, or border, as well as reposition hot spots and change how they overlap. Now you'll change the color and positioning.

1.
Click the Select Map-area color button () (the eighth button from the left) on the Main Toolbar. In the Color palette, enter a number in the hex value field or, in the Swatch palette, choose a color to change the fill color for the hotspot, and press Enter or Return. We used FF99CC. (Blue is the default.)

2.
If necessary, click the Show Map-area edges button () (the sixth button from the left) on the Main Toolbar to activate the border around the hotspot. Because you added the circle last, the circular hotspot is selected.

When two hotspots overlap, you can change which is on top by selecting one of the hotspots and clicking either the Bring Map-area to Front or Send Map-area to Back button ().

Instead, you'll reposition the hotspots so that they don't overlap.

3.
Click the Select Map-area Tool () (the leftmost button on the Main Toolbar). In the document window, click the polygon hotspot to select it. Handles appear around it.

4.
Drag the handles of the polygon hotspot to adjust it so that it no longer overlaps the circular one.

If necessary, you can use the same procedure to move the circular hotspot.
