Defining Expand/Collapse Sections (Drop-Down Hotspots)
You can create sections of content that expand and collapse when you click a link or hot spot. This structure allows you to create items, such as bulleted lists, that are easy to scan, and then the users can expand individual items to get additional information. You can also use this structure to provide definitions. For more information about which output formats support this feature, see “Features Available in Each Output Format” on page 9.
When you identify the paragraph styles to start expand/collapse sections, you define whether those sections should initially be expanded (shown) or collapsed (hidden). ePublisher inserts an image indicating the state of the link. When a user clicks on a hotspot with the initial content collapsed, the content expands under the hotspot. If the user clicks a second time on the hotspot, the content is hidden again.
