    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Currently it's not possible to change the look of the shapes.
    We've had this requirement before, and opened an improvement in our JIRA System to implement a functionality allowing users to control the saturation and color of the highlightes shapes: https://k15t.jira.com/browse/IMGMP-82

    Unfortunately there's currently no workaround available. Please sign up at https://k15t.jira.com/secure/Signup!default.jspa to watch, comment on or vote for this issue. We'll then send a notification for every status update.

    Your suggestion would be to not highlight the shapes at all, but simply change the pointer if a user hovers over a clickable area?

    Cheers,
    Nils

    The default behavior with most image maps is that the 'hot spot' is not visible to the end user until the user passes the mouse pointer over the 'hotspot'. When that happens, the mouse pointer turns into a "hand" with a pointer finger indicating a clickable area.

    The "Gray Box" that your software creates seems opposite of what it should be. When you hover or select an area, if anything you are "highlighting" that area, which you would expect it to be more clear, not turn dark, this makes it harder to read.

    It's like walking into a room and someone turning off the lights.

    Also, there is no need to show the complete shape/area of any image map. If the user puts the mouse over a clickable area and the pointer changed indicating a clickable spot, then they are good to go.

    Making the complete hotspot turn gray and visible can make an image/image map look bad if all the image map hot spot are not perfectly lined up.

    So, as a user of your software, I like it. But I am not a fan of the 'gray hover' and displaying the complete hotspot 'area', it's not needed.

    Thank you,

    Chris...

    According to our user report, a user with your user name got created, but I can't see your vote on the mentioned improvement. Maybe the mentioned issue was only temporary, could you try to log on and vote again?
