I have a PNG file with 100's of hotspots on it from a PSD. However, when I convert a selected PSD layer into a hotspot it sometimes creates extra coordinates that we do not need. Is there a way to delete a coordinate from a hot spot? Furthermore, is there a way to add a coordinate to a hotspot that is already created?
Wow, what a great question!
I've been creating slices and hotspots for years, and your question made me realize that I've never tried to modify the number of nodes for a hotspot or slice.
I just tried to add and remove nodes from a hotspot, and I couldn't do it. It seems that FW does not treat a hotspot like a path, so using the Path Panel or the Pen tool to modify nodes directly does not work. I also looked for a method to convert a slice or hotspot into a path, then we could modify the nodes and convert it back to a hotspot, but I could not find a way to turn a hotspot into a path, either.
If someone else figures out a way to do this, please post the method here. Thanks!

So for now, I am deleting the hotspot, deleting extra points on the paths that I do not need, then re-creating the hotspot. But if someone finds out how to delete hotspot coordinates, please post!
