Need a clear and brief clarification on 'View mode', 'Try mode' and 'Test mode' in Record Screen tab. What is exactly the functionality difference in between them.

Some body help me please!!

Thanks David. I learnt a quick way to have a new button appear after other things have been completed rather than having to use Variables.

@Craig - ahh, it's amazing how flexible states are, right? We can probably show more examples of states vs. layers.

Having seen all the vidoes of this video workshop, I have got loads of help to understand articulate storyline techinicalities and functionalities quite clearly. I can't help appreciating and admiring the maker of this workshop. Thanks a lot for making storyline much much easier to use in my projects making.
