I have put together a large Fireworks project (199 pages)
simulating a Windows application. Some of the size was a result of
my inability to figure out how to get a simple popup Dialog to
appear from various screens in the application. This resulted in
quite a few similar pages.
I have been able to create a Slice and put the dialog graphic
on State2. I then link the Slice to a Hot Spot that I created on
the page (State1). However, the result is a simple rollover, where
the dialog graphic is temporarily displayed when I roll over the
Hot Spot. This is not what I need to happen. What I need is for the
Dialog graphic in State2 (under the slice) to be displayed when I
click on the Hot Spot.
I noticed an "Alt:" field on the Properties tab of a Hot
Spot, can this be used to help solve the problem?
I also noticed a "Target:" field on the Properties tab of a
Hot Spot, what is this used for?
The documentation is pretty thin for hot spot and Slice
operation. I have only been able to find basic operational info. Is
there a more complete set of documentation that I am missing?

Open the behaviors panel and change the onMouseover behavior
Worked great. I was not even aware that there was a behavior
Once I got the State 2 setup and clicked the hot spot, I was
able to see the slice on State 2. To remove the popup dialog and
get back to State 1, I simply put a hot spot and slice on the
dialog on State 2 and used the same method to remove the Dialog -
simulating the user hitting a close button on the popup Dialog.
