Hot spots move around for no apparent reason

As far back as Lectora 12, the hot spots on drag-and-drop questions have sometimes inexplicably moved around. It's still happening in 17.1.1.

I get it, sort of, that when I resize the target image I might need to resize the hotspots -- although that could be dealt with programmatically too. But why in the world do the hot spots change size and position on the image when all I do is move the image on the page? Are the hot spots referencing the stage instead of the image?

    In the most recent versions of Lectora it's related to seamless play.  The issue has been raised and reported. Turning off SPP seems to help.  We're hoping to have a fix in a future version.

    We do not use Seamless Play and still see the problem, and the problem predates the introduction of the feature. Glad to hear it's got some attention, though, thanks.

    I'd second this guess that this is what the cause of the issue is. I have noticed the same issue on these kinds of questions, and I tried to test this by creating an image the same size as the stage and moving it, and in this instance the hotspot appeared to move correctly. I can't speak to it resizing from just moving the image though, that did not happen to me when trying this test.
