Problem with trial version of Image...

I am running Windows Vista.
I have VSD 6.0
I have the trial version of Image Mapper

I created a map to an image which you can see at www.creativestone3.com
on the products page. As you can see I didnt map all of the stone. Today I went in to map the rest of the stones and saved my map. But, the HTML is not being created for the new mapped areas. Just some of them. Then when I did preview, it moved some text in my page header(the address to the left) below the picture of the map. It is not like that in my VSD page before I preview. Is there a limit to the number of hot spots in an image? Thanks

I created a new map basically started over. Now I have the map working but when I preview the HTML box is grabbing the nearest text and taking it with it and displaying it at the bottom of the map. I have tried cutting the text and then previewing again and it takes the next closest text with it again.

You are basically inserting more code than you need. You have inserted the following, which is the code for a whole page by itself, rather than just the portion which you would insert into an existing page.
<html>

<head>

<title>CoffeeCup Image Mapper map file</title>

<meta name="generator" content="CoffeeCup Image Mapper">

<body>

This is the only part of the above code you need to be inserting:
<!-- Beginning of Client Side Image Map -->

<map name="Products">

<area shape="rect" coords="7,17,28,42" href="" alt="Water Spicket" title="Water Spicket">

<area shape="rect" coords="7,160,75,210" href="" alt="Limestone" title="Limestone">

<area shape="rect" coords="2,48,78,98" href="" alt="Stacked Stone" title="Stacked Stone">

</map>

You should also avoid using spaces in the names of folders or files.

Thanks Cary, I will give this a try when I get back home this evening and let you know how it works out.
