Rollover question

I am working on a rollover Flash movie.  I havean image as the background and buttons for the "hotspots". When the cursor rolls over a hotspot, I display some text.  The text is displayed via the "OVER" attribute of the button.  It works fine except I screwed up a few buttons.  Some of  the buttons have their "OVER" effect dsiplayed when I rollover the associated text and not just the button.  It doesn't happen on all button, but I can't figure out why soem work oand others don't.

Thanks

post your fla so we can look at it.
Of course, you could delete the buttons that are not working and duplicate the one that is, then edit the text on the duplicate. :)

I originally had a frame for "UP" and "OVER" and not "DOWN" and "HIT".  I copied the frame from "UP" to "DOWN" and "HIT" and I no longer have the problem.  Remember that "HIT" is the normal state of the button and "OVER" reveals decscriptive text.

HIT defines the area that'll trigger the rollover... if that was the same as your rollover state and not the normal state, then it'd have made your button "hitable" on the rollover text.

HIT is not the normal state of the button, as nifmcm was referencing. The hit area defines the area that is considered "clickable". If you draw a circle in your hit area and nothing more, the circle will not show up in regular view and a circle area will be defined as the place where you can click.
