    Elasticised images

    rabedaw Level 1
      While I am able to re-size as a group, images with image map overlays, to a given pixel size, I find to make the group 'elastic' so that it is re-sized to a percentage (say 100%) I lose the image map overlay.
      My aim is to re-size tables to suit the viewers monitor settings and have the associated image with image map overlay re-sized accordingly. Re-sizing to pixels is no problem. Re-sizing to a percentage does not seem to work.
      Advice or guidance much appreciated:

          This will not work. Discard the notion.

            Hmmm, thanks Murray, but "discarding the notion" did not fix the problem. Should there not be a method within a table cell that could accept both the image and the image map accepting an overall size of !00%? Obviously an image with a width of 100% (of the given cell), the height is also re-sized proportionally, then why is not the image map? Given that an image with and image map when re-sized to a given pixel size is re-sized as a group!!
            There MUST be a way!!

              To define an area in an image map you use pixels, not percentages, hence
              it can not be done.
