Map Hotspot

Define and add hotspots to the hotspots file using the following options:

Setting Description
Hotspot text Type a text string, up to 80 characters, to identify the hotspot. Reflection creates a hotspot wherever this text string is encountered in your host application.
Select Action Select an action to associate with the specified hotspot text.
