My coworker and I are creating a project in RoboHelp 2000 and am currently
having problems with hotspots. The problem started out that on both of our
systems (mine is Windows 2000; she has NT), when we created an image map -
create the hot spot on the image, select a topic, and then save, no link was
showing up in the compiled version.

Then it got even more complicated - When she tried to select the topic for
the hotspot - she got a Runtime error (which our IT guys guessed was from
the Word connection running from the server instead of her actual computer).
Well, now she has no more runtime error - but now, when she selects the
topic - the HotSpot Studio won't even appear.

On my system - I can create the hotspot, but when I save, close, and then
reopen - the hotspot no longer is there.

One further note: We created one successful hot spot at the very beginning
of the project - and it still works. I compared the coding and cannot see
any problems between the old and the newer tries for hotspot linking.

Any ideas for a solution to this problem is greatly appreciated.
