Object Appearing Before Trigger

OK, this is a Powerpoint question.  After all this Storyline, I'm way out of my element, so forgive me if this answer is super obvious, but I have an object that's supposed to appear on click and instead it's just sitting their on the screen...starring at me...laughing, before I ever click anything!  I can minimize it by clicking on it (which I'm supposed to be able to do), and it opens back up when I click the trigger I have set for it, but no matter what I do, when I open the slideshow, it's on the screen before it's supposed to be.

Hi Ashley,

I'm not sure if this is the case, but it sounds like you're using an animation for the object, is that right?

I took a quick look at the supported animations for Presenter and PowerPoint and I believe the trigger you're using is this one:

  • Animation using a trigger "Start effect on click of..."

You may also want to take a look at the article that contains this information:

Articulate Support > Supported PowerPoint Animations

If this isn't what you're using, can you give a little more information about the object and how you have it set up, please?

Thanks!
