Hi Jim,

If the "non lens" portion of the figure is transparent, try making it opaque.

If that doesn't work or doesn't fit your design, place a button or 
other control behind the figure with the handler:

on mouseUp
   send mouseUp to image "My Figure Name"
end mouseUp

or just set the icon of the button to the id of your figure.

Hope that helps.
