Color:Tourweaver 7 provides a default style for three states hotspot. So if you set a certain color for hotspot, there will be three states of this hotspot generated automatically. For example, if you've set '00FF00' as the hotspot color, then the three states of this hotspot are as below:
|Hotspot on Scene||Hotspot on Map|
Image: You can also customize the hotspot image by importing three images for the three states of the hotspot. Each hotspot possesses three states including normal state, over state and down state. When you select xx_1.jpg as the image for normal state, the program will search xx_2.jpg and xx_3.jpg in the same folder automatically. And add them as the images of over state and down state. Therefore you may use the same prename for the three state images like xx_1.jpg, xx_2.jpg and xx_3.jpg to save your time when importing them.
