    Working with polygon shapes and defining active/non-active mouseover areas (imported shapes)?

    thomas1977

      Hey guys!

       

      Really struggling with this one. Since Edge only has rectangles and ellipses built in as available shapes, how to I/we work with polygon shapes and active mouseover areas INSIDE of these shapes and non-active mouseover areas OUTSIDE of the shapes?

       

      Problem/symptom: when I import a polygon, be it any file format from from Photoshop or SVG from Illustrator, a rectangular border/background (transparent) gets applied, leading to this rectangle defining the mouseover area of the shape - and not the shape itself (be it a star or whatever).

       

      WHAT I WANT: the very shape defines the mouseover area. How do I achieve this?? See examle below:

      WHAT I DON'T WANT: how is is now:
