EN - Creating Hotspots - Here's how!

 Hotspots are useful, small boxes that are perfect for sharing information, links, pictures and much more. They are a good possibility to make tours even more informative. That is why they are a must for every tour!

How do you create a Hotspot?

Classic Tour

Go to the tour you want to edit and navigate to "Hotspots/Infoboxes".

Adjust the picture to the point where you want to add a hotspot. After clicking on "Add hotspot" you can choose the kind of hotspot you would like to add. 

After choosing the type, the hotspot marker will be activated.

Click the point where the hotspot should be placed. 

 

Important: On "Link (arrow)" only the vertical number counts.

Through drag-n-drop it is possible to change the position of the hotspot later. 

 

After creating a new hotspot, the window to edit the hotspot opens automatically. 

Note: In the description you can choose a personal title which will only be shown internally. 

 

What kind of hotspots exist?
