Menu Simulator

Insert jumps and popups into captured graphics

Once you've got the graphics installed, the one remaining chore is to link them to each other and related topics using jumps and popups. You can do this with SHED, or you can use your authoring tool if it includes its own hotspot editor. Let's start with the main menu. Create hotspots for each item on the main menu, then have each hotspot jump to the corresponding drop-down menu, like this:

Hotspots from Main Menu

For each of the sub menus, have the hotspots do this:

Hotspots from File Menu

Repeat for the other menus. Drawing the hotspots uniformly can be difficult.
