Sounds like you want to create an image map.
Insert | Image Map.
For what it's worth, I inferred from reading this that Jan808 was wanting to actually edit the image from inside RoboHelp. As in launching an external image editor to tweak it somehow. And I can provide steps for setting this up if that's the case.
But first I think Jan808 needs to come back and clarify exactly what is being expected.
LOL, it will be interesting to see!
Cheers all... Rick
Clearly I might be out of my capabilities. Our customer wants to use RoboHelp to set up the data. I have a graphic that they would like me to make interactive for a lack of better terminology. I am just doing a sampling right now. When you click on certain areas of the graphic, things happen, ie. more info will be display. I didn't know if once I get the graphic into RoboHelp if I can set up the links and rollovers there or do I need to do it in another application such as Dreamweaver or Fireworks? I am practically totally unfamiliar with RoboHelp and am trying to learn several things at once. I hope this is clearer, probably not though. Thanks.
Based on what you have said, it would appear my colleague Peter was spot on in his assessment. What was totally throwing me was the fact you said you wanted to "Edit the graphic in RoboHelp". Which seems to imply you want to open the image inside an image editor to change the way it looks. Perhaps change the colors around or otherwise make the image appear differently when you are finished.
So it would seem that you simply have a single image on a HTML page and want it to do different things when you click different areas. Right? Assuming that's the case, you need to listen to Peter. An image map is the way to fly and I apologize for muddying the waters with my babbling.
Happy Wednesday all! Rick
