Welcome to the

Crosshair Text Reveal Hover Box Widget

Add a unique hover effect over your images with the Crosshair Text Reveal Hover Box Widget from Muse For You.

Using the widget - Initial Steps


In the examples below, each Hover Box has different overlay color and opacity, text and text alignment, crosshair color and size, and effect hover speed, and thus, a unique instance number.

Drag the 'Crosshair Text Reveal Hover Box' widget from the Library Panel (Window > Library) and place onto your Adobe Muse website. Within widget options, add an image, style the effect, crosshair, and text, and done!


Add multiple instances on one page

  • In 'Instance' section within widget options, put a unique instance number for each new hover box.
  • If all the hover boxes on a page have same styling, the instance number can be the same.
  • If 'Enable Link' option is enabled or disabled for one hover box, all other hover boxes with same instance number must have the same setting.
  • If you would like to have different colors and settings, add a new hover box, and change the instance number for that hover box. This method works for breakpoints also.
