Base layer bleeding through


I've got a base layer with 2 buttons, which send the user to one of two layers. There are triggers set up so they have to view both layers before the next button appears on the base layer and if they choose to revisit a layer, I've set them to resume saved state so they don't have to sit through the animation.

The problem is- of the 20 people who have tested the published training, 4 or 5 can see some of the base layer bleeding through the top layers.

I've attached the .story file and a screenshot of the problem. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for sharing your file, Phoenix! I saw the same thing happen in the Flash output, so my guess is those 4 or 5 folks were testing the Flash version.

The culprit is the 2 "Change state of rectangle to visited" triggers on the base layer. Remove those triggers, and you'll be good to go. Here's a link to the Flash output with that change. 

On that note, since the Visited state is a built-in state, you don't need a trigger for it. The shape will change to Visited automatically when the learner clicks it. 

Let me know if you have other questions!

Hi Phoenix :) How did Alyssa's output work for you? Did that correct the issue you were seeing? Having a trigger to change a built-in state as she shared above seemed to be the culprit. You should not need to prevent the users from viewing the Flash output.
