Sorry but there is no easy way. I'd recommend copy / paste every time.
I'd be surprised if Willam doesn't offer some sort of scripting solution to accomplish that.
Over to you... Willam?
The only thing I can come up it to write a script to do this. But that
will only work if the circumstances of all dropdowns are the same
(placement of text from dropdown, etc.)
I'm not sure they are all the same. The file shows a list of terms, and each one is a drop-down hotspot. However, the contents of each hotspot has different formatting, images, etc. Is that what you meant?
The problem with a script is that it is rather dumb. It is not too hard
to remove all dropdowns and place the content somewhere on the page. But
the script has to know where to put the content from the dropdown. If
all dropdowns are exactly the same, it is doable to create a solution.
But if all your dropdowns differ in how they are used, it is hard to
make the script determine where to place the content.
So if all your dropdowns are used for more information that can be
displayed below the paragraph with the link (as is normal if you use
dropdowns) a script is a feasible solution.
