The default view is not Satellite, but the view you set in the hotspot editor when clicking on the icon "use as default view".
When you click on this icon PTP gets the kind of layer set in PTP, the center of the map, and the zoom level of the map.
Those 3 parameters are then set in the tour.
So if you are using the "Map" layer in PTP when you click on this icon, the default layer in the tour will be the "Map" layer.
Oh....that's excellent; now why did I not notice that.
Thanks for the tip.
