Base images are showing through layers although everything is set

Jul 25, 2013

Good Morning,

I'm having a strange problem. I have a slide with 5 layers. Each layer is dedicated to a system we use.  On each layer I've close the eyes of the images from the base slide that I don't want to display. However, when I view a layer, the 'visted' state button from the base slide shows through. I've gone to the gears within said layer and set it to hide base layer, but it still shows. I've attached an image of the slide and the setting. Any ideas of what I'm doing wrong?

Karel, this was just an issue with the order of your triggers for the buttons on the baselayer. Instead of showing the layer first and then changing the state of the associated button to 'visited' it should be the other way around. Also, the triggers  to change to 'visited' state are not necessary in the first place. "Visited' is a built-in state that will be automatically displayed once an object is clicked. See attached file, where I removed the unnecessary triggers.

Thank you so much Michael, just to make sure I understand:

  1. I have to pay attention to the order of my triggers when multiple triggers are used.
  2. When I use objects to access layers, I don't have to add a visited trigger to the object, however I do need to make sure I assign a 'visted' and 'hover' state to the object.

Is that correct?
