Actuallay I can't change the predefined message text when using the 'hotspot' action properties.

Any idea ?

I'm using DS 6.71

To change the message that appears for the Launch Application action, you will need to do the following:

After you have created your Launch Application action, Save your demo.

Then, go to the File menu and select Demo Text | Export.

Export the demo text file to the location where your demo file (*.dbd) is.

Open the text file in an ASCII text editor.

Find the line that holds the information for the message and edit this to your specifications.

Save the text file.

You will need to make sure this text file is in the same directory as the DemoShield Player (demo32.exe) during demo playback to ensure the proper message gets displayed.

I hope this helps.

Thank you for the good hint :)
Editing can be done best using the DemoText Editor.

Well, sometimes one can't see the wood for the trees :rolleyes:
