Audio layer issue

Hello, I am sure there is an easy fix, but can't seem to find a post that solves this issue.  I have a slide with 3 layers.  All layers have audio.  I do NOT want to hide other slide layers. I want the learner to be able to see all content from each layer, BUT I do want the audio to stop from one layer when a learner chooses a button to open a new layer.

Any help/guidance is much appreciated.

Thanks,

Troy

Hi Troy

should be an easy fix - can you share the slide so someone can help you.  It's easy to offer a solution if we can see your setup.

Hi Wendy,

Thanks, Here is the file.  I took out all other slides, but you can still see the issue.

If a user clicks a button to open a new layer I want the audio to stop from the previous layer, but I do NOT want to hide the layer screen content.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Hi Troy. Attached is one way to do this. The main thing is that the audio for each layer is now in its own layer. When each of your original layers opens, it has a trigger to open the associated audio layer. Each audio layer has two triggers to hide the other two audio layers.

I had to add triggers for each button on the base layer to hide the chosen layer before then showing it, in order to restart its timeline. That causes a little flash because of the animations on the objects in the layers. 

Anyway, see if this works for you.
