Open new slide in a greybox

Nov 28, 2014

Yesterday I saw a content made with Articulate 13 (not Storyline) and I'm wondering how to realise that effect:

When the user clicks on a trigger on the slide (e.g. a shape), a new smaller slide with additional contents will show in a greybox. That means, the new slide opens on the top of the slide with the trigger point and you see the content surrounded by a grey half-transparency box. So you also see the first slide in the background.

Any idea how to do that?

Thanks a lot!

Hi Erik,

Can you send a screenshot or a link to the published output so we can get a better idea of what you're looking at?

Without seeing the project, I would say the slide was duplicated, and a transparent square was placed on top of the duplicated slide, to simulate a lightbox. Then hyperlinks were used to link to the duplicate slide, and back to the original.

Hope that helps!
