Hi Randy,

I'm not sure I'm following the set up you're describing here? You've created some layers on your slides, based on something you've set up in the slide master, and when accessing one of the layers you're no longer able to get to your other layers? You mentioned that they're set up automatically, so I assume you're trigger them by when certain elements appear on the timeline. If that's the case you'll want to check all the slide layer properties to ensure that they're not set to pause the timeline of the base layer or hide the elements on the base layer, and that the layer will be hidden when the timeline ends.  If you're still having difficulty after checking your slide layer properties, are you able to share the .story file here with us so that we can take a look? If you'd prefer to share privately you can also send along here.

This answer would work if the layer is on the slide that's playing.  however the layer i call is on a master layer and even with that checkbox selected the layer can't pause the base layer because it's base layer is a master not the slide it's being called from.
