Default Multiple Lightboxes on same page

Hi,
there has been a thread with this Caption, but it is different:
I have two different links (via hotspots) located at the same page leading to two different lightboxes that are leading to a site page.
Each box has a different sizes and different caption.
But in the preview for both links I get the same light box (same meassuremtns and caption) but showing the correct content.
Thank you for hints, horst

Ups, I have to correct (have been too tired yesterday ).
No, even the two different links are not accepted, both hotspots are opening the exact same Lightbox.

If the lightbox hotspots are on the same image this can happen,it is best to have separate images for the hotspots.

Hi,
thank you for the respond!
That sounds to be a bug? Or just a missing feature?

That will not be an easy task: That picture is a map carrying several hotspots that will lead to further explanations.
In a former version (using an alternative software) these leaded to pop up windows.

I am not sure if it is a bug but i had three images in one and i had the same problem it wasn't until i separated the images that i could get it to work,maybe someone with a greater knowledge than me will know of some code that you can add will fix it.

Hi,
coding? much easier than that :
- create a Master Page just for this one page
- set the background of that Master page to transparent
- order this MasterPage to the very first position of the page
- place your Hotspots (or a transparent quick shape will do the same) where you need it.
Ready!

Hiya horst

If the hotspot are touching each other, that could cause the challenge you experience. Perhaps make them a bit smaller.

Hello Marilyn,
no, they are fare away from eachother. But the MasterPage trick is doing a good job. Just working with that.
