2 Problems: Ghost needle on dial, and flashing text on hotspot/layer

Dec 15, 2021

Hi everyone,

I'm experiencing two problems with my second project in Storyline.

First is that I have a ghost needle on the dial. I did try changing the initial starting point to north (6 when I had 12 stops) and the ghost remains. See screenshot. 

Second, is that I have a hotspot slide with layers. Each layer has textboxes, and they flash like a strobe light when the mouse hovers over the hotspot. Is there a way to have the text not flash?


Thank you,

Hey Lindsey!

It looks like the dial is duplicated, but it's hard to say without seeing the file. Any chance you could share the .story file so we can investigate and make suggestions? You can share it publicly in this discussion or privately here.

For the flashing when hovering issue, we released a fix for a similar issue in Storyline 360 Update 58. What version are you running? You can find that in any project from the Help tab, then click About Storyline. If you're not on the latest, follow these steps, and let me know if that takes care of the flickering.

Looking forward to your response to see if this helps!
