Can you tell me what is the simplest way to display a different text box when a mouseover is done on various areas of the workspace.

Thanks in advance for any help in this matter.

Another way would be to create a main movie, then in a child movie place the edit box. Create a button, leave the normal state with something that won't conflict with your background(I used a large period that was the same color), on the mouse over 'action' have it show the child movie with the edit box. I will post an example shortly.
Edited, cause I'm a lousy speller..............

Heres an example:


and heres the movie file:


AOL may double up the .movie extension when the movie file is downloaded, just rename it and remove the extra extension(gotta love that good ol' AOL FTP).

Thanks for the help I got it to work. My problem now is that if I go immediately from one hot spot to another quickly, the second text box does not appear. If I go off the hot spot, and then back on, the text box appears. I have been playing with the time parameters of the main and sub-movies. By reducing the time frame value I have made it work better, but I still eperience this problem when I change hot spots quickly.

Thanks for the help
