Impress - Names and photos

Postby RIPAULT » Sun Dec 23, 2007 5:26 pm

Would it be possible to implement photos for example with the name of the person ( or an associated text ) when passing on the face
Thanks in advance

Well, Impress doesn't support any events except mouse clicks, so precisely speaking, what you ask for is not possible. Further, the clicks are not localized: a click anywhere on the slide is enough; there's no way to tie the click to a specific area, unless you start writing macro code.

You could easily set up a picture so that when you clicked somewhere a text would appear, but it's not going to work well for pictures with more than one person

If you really want a localized mouse-over, the only way I can think of is to make an image map (insert the image, then do Edit > imagemap. An imagemap is normally used for making parts of an image into clickable hypertext links, but you can supply a dummy link and some text, and the text will be shown as a tooltip when you hover the mouse over the area.
