    Hi Jeremy,

    I hope you still check this blog :)

    Question for you – I have embedded a .pdf into my Mediator 9 project. Within that .pdf are 17 separate graphics that I would like to turn into “hotspots” that take the user to a separate page that plays video in my mediator 9 project. Is this possible or will the pdf have to be imported as an image? I know if I don’t have the .pdf embedded and instead pop it out in Adobe Reader that I can make the graphics open the video, but I’d much rather keep everything contained in the project. This is all going on a CD ROM. Can you help me?

    Jeremy, thanks for the great Hot Spots screencast. I’ve been wanting to try out that feature, and really liked your “zoom” implementation. Very creative. Thanks for sharing that great idea!!
