All about Submenus

Hotspots can link to a number of content types - whether it be files, slideshows, links or submenus.

A submenu is a new sub level slide.

Instead of linking a hotspot directly to an image or a slideshow, we use sub menus to create another new slide. 

Here's how you create a submenu: 

1. After creating a hotspot, select Add Content from the right hand side bar. 

2. Select 'New Submenu'. 

3. This will create a new slide in the right hand menu box. You can click the thumbnail, or click 'Go to Submenu' to go to the new slide. 

4. On the new slide, you are free to add image backgrounds or hotspots with anything you like.

 

Removing a submenu:

To remove a submenu, simply select the hotspot that links to the submenu. Click the submenu tab. 

Under the thumbnail you will see 'remove link'. Click it, and the submenu will disappear from your showcase. 

Note: your submenu still exists, it is just unlinked.

 

 

Adding an unlinked slide to a hotspot:

If you'd like to put it back just select 'existing slide' in the right hand content menu. 

Select the slide you want from the pop up box of thumbmails.   

The small eye next to the slide number and letter combination shows that the slide is not currently used anywhere.
