If i create a tooltip that's just acting as an image map, or helper, i don't want to have the rectangle shown. Wether i put the rectangle with color = none, or opactiy = 0, it's just becoming impossible to catch in my layout and change position.
Since we don't have a mechanism as in inDesign to catch "next object" in a group, or a list of everything that's on a page (layer panel), i don't see a practical way to do this.
I just watched Danielle Beaumont Video about how to make tooltips and triggers, from august 2011, http://tv.adobe.com/watch/muse-feature-tour/muse-define-trigger-and-ta rget-interactions/ and you know what, she has the same kind of problems, that she worksaround by just making everything in the exact right order, things move one by one, and typing tips is a guess game So that's not just me
Hey, I was wondering the same thing - transparent tooltips just do not like being selected!
I found a bit of a workaround that has worked well for me to far. Rather than making the fill color of the trigger transparent (or opacity =0), I choose an easily distinguishable color and set opacity to 1. This really doesn't affect the color of the photo/text and allows you to select the trigger like normal. I usually need to click multiple times to select the trigger, but at least it pops up.
Hope this helps - it's saved me a lot of aggravation of having to put everything in place perfectly the first time.
With the latest version of Muse, you will see that the images used as the tooltip triggers and targets have changed and reconfigured. They no longer resemble the video http://tv.adobe.com/watch/muse-feature-tour/muse-define-trigger-and-ta rget-interactions/ and function differently? I'm applying an image onto a target and trying to place these into position in my design. I cannot get the both as a group to show within states or disappear together ungrouped? I've tried pasting and inserting elements with no luck. I used these prior to the new version of Muse without difficulty unless made transparent and trying to relocate them which is next to impossible. Then I find the target area expands to a larger size than the image I'm using and again they will not disappear or reappear in unison. I can't find a way to figure these out as in paint me a picture cause I surely don't understand their functionality.
Yes...I love the concept of Tooltips....but boy, you have to have the patience, and persistence, of Job to get them to work like they are supposed to.
I do hope the team is continuing to work/refine this because there are lots of things that make the actual using of it quite a challenge. Selection is the main problem...if you could fix that, other stuff would be less problematic I think. And then, if you accidentally have them in wrong order, easy to do b/c of the selection issue, then autoplay will show them out of order. And choosing the entire "composition" box is near impossible I've found after you remove the fill of the trigger.
Also, have to choose, select, edit and move very carefull or for some reason the text frame/target takes on life of its own...that has caused me quite a bit of time.
And, never seems to work when I try to do anything in multiples -- I have 12 images on home page that the tooltips are being used on and I finally had to just go to each trigger and each state to remove the fill...didn't work when tried doing so all at once.
So great concept that definitely needs refining before it is polished.
