Easy but mindless and time consuming. Capture the new .bmp in your usual
and, if it is not there already, copy it to the clipboard. Open the .shg in
the hotspot editor and choose Replace from the Edit menu. <poof> Old bitmap
gone, new bitmap there. As long as the two bitmaps are the same size and
have identical placement, everything is OK. If not you'll have to fudge the
hotspots around a bit.
