Alternative to Lightbox for a globally accessible slide

Hey there,

Is there a Storyline alternative to using a lightbox for a globally accessible slide?

I am trying to create globally accessible slides for Help and Resources. (The customer doesn't want us to use the tabs of the Storyline interface).

So, I would like to click the Help button that appears on the top of every page, and have a popup containing the information appear. 

And, when I close the Help screen, I would like to return to the page that triggered it to open.

Thanks,

ERic

Wow, cool sample, Steve.

Question: I've added a button to the Master of my project, but I don't see anything on the slides of the project.

What could keep the button from being visible on the project slides? They are associated to the right Master slide.

In an attempt to see if I was just doing it wrong, I created a small sample using just the background image from my project and a couple of buttons on the Master.

The sample works fine. Looks killer.

Thanks,

Eric

Hey there,

Thanks for the replies. Maybe something is corrupted in this project.

For some reason, I can't see any objects I place on the Master when I return to the project slides.

That said, the second little sample project I created -- to make sure I was actually performing the steps correctly -- is working fine.

Thanks,

Eric
