Hotspots setting improvement needed

Hi everyoone.
I used the Multiple Hotspots Image on our website and came up with one suggestion of improvement.
On some pictures (aerial view in my case), the spots may be very small sometimes. Which means once you apply the hotspot, the area you want to point out is no longer visible as it is hidden by the hotspot. That doesn't make sense at all.
So the possibilty to apply a size setting for the hotspots would be great. Basically having the choice between "small", "medium", "large" would be great. Or maybe change the shape of the hotspot so that it doesn't hide what we need to point out (like the interactive map icons that are pointy on the bottom part, maybe...?). Thanks!
Other than that the plugin (all of them actually) is just awsome and does a great job! Keep up the good work!

Hi PilotBear,

Thank you for your suggestion. Although I'm not sure what you mean with "area you want to point out is no longer visible as it is hidden by the hotspot". Do you mean that once the hotspot is found the icon blocks the area since you mentioned that it is a bit small? I would suggest that you include a screenshot :-)

Hi.
Thanks for your answer. If you look at the screenshot I attached, the hotspots hide the areas I talk about in the explanation. Basically once the hotspot is applied to the area, the user does really see on the picture what I'm talking about... He clicks on the hotspot, gets the explanation or description but does not really see the area I'm talking about, underneath the hotspot that is to big. It would work on a bigger pictures but I can't have pictures bigger than 800px on our website. So it would be nice to be able to scale the hotspots to the scale of the picture. Or just change the shape of the hotspots... like maps icons in Google maps or other map applications that use pointy hotspots in order to not  hide the information.  Is that more clear?

Hi pilotbear,

Thank you for clarifying this. This will definitely help in making this content more flexible. 

I have attached a sample pointer icon for reference :-)

Instead of having the + sign on the hotspots, it would be nice to be able to assign them a number.  Doing so, we would be able to guide the students and show them things in a specific order...
