Do you have Photoshop..?

The only way to change the colour is via the graphic itself which is in the "spots" folder...

If you have Photoshop, I will explain an easy way to achieve this..

Hi.. This process is the only way to preserve the transparencies and the gradients of the hotspot as they were made..

1. Drag the hotspot from the Spots Folder onto the Photoshop icon which will auto open Photoshop, maintaining the size of the graphic.. If Photoshop is already open the graphic will appear..

2. On a Mac, hold down the 'command' key which is the third button in from the bottom left, next to the return long return key.. Then use your mouse to click on the actual graphic in the Layer.. It should now be selected..

3. Set the 'Foreground Colour' at the bottom left of your controls to the desired colour.

4. Hold down the 'option' or 'alt' key second in from the bottom left, then press 'delete'

Your graphic is now the colour you chose with all alpha gradients preserved. Now Save.

Test your Tour and you will see its as it was designed by Kolor but with your chosen colour...

Repeat this process for all other hotspots..

Aged spots are not colorizeable.

We have to fix this in the interface : do not propose a custom color when the spot are not colorizeable.

But as you see, when you change the color of a colorizeable spot, the colored spot appears in the "Spot styles" column on the left of the "Style" tab.
When you try to colorize an "Aged" spot, they are not colorized on the left column.

Hey Gérald

Why would it be necessary to have some hotspot with no custom colour options... Surly it would be a better option to allow all hotspot to have a custom colour.. Seems to me a confusion is being added that is unnecessary... What if I like that hotspot but the default colour does not match my theme as in the case here..

If someone wants to share, or sell a set of icons to be used as PTP spots, it is easier to create uncolorizeable icon.
To have a colorizeable icon, means a colored monochrome icon.

If you want to create a set of multicolor icons, it can not be colorizeable.

So yes I agree, fo the "Aged" set, we may have create a colored colorizeable set.
