4.6 Hotspot

All shapes contain one special point, called hotspot. The hotspot can be set to any point in the coordinate system of the shape, but if not explicitly set, the hotspot equals the last point added to the shape. The hotspot is especially useful when working with closed splines, e.g. the hotspot could be set to the center of a circle instead of some irrelevant control point outside the circle. See the next section for an application of hotspot. Also, the hotspot is used when the shape is filled with paint involving rasters, see The Paint.
