Buttons and hotspots

I have a parent page with 4 hotspots.  I have created a layer for each picture under the hotspot that includes a button with a checkbox showing that the scenario has been visited.

Two of the buttons (checkboxes) appear correctly, which is AFTER the hotspot has been selected and the corresponding page has been completed.  Two of the buttons appear briefly WHEN the hotspot is being selected and AFTER the hotspot has been selected.

The layers for all buttons, graphics and hotspots are the same.  The timeline for all buttons, graphics and hotspots are the same.  Can anybody help?

Thanks!

I think I've got a fix, but it still doesn't explain why those 2 layers don't work the same as the other graphic layers on the top.

The fix:  I moved the checkbox done to .5 seconds on the timeline for both of the bottom graphics.  Now, the checkmark doesn't appear until the learner has visited the child page.

Any explanation?

Thanks!

Hi Ellen, 

If I'm understanding correctly, you would like the user to click on the hot spot, visited the associated slide, and then when they return to the "Parent Page" a checkmark would appear next to the scenario they've already completed.

If this is what you are trying to achieve, you'll need to use variables. This is how you can track a user across multiple slides; in this case variables would be used to tell the checkmark to appear when a certain slide has been visited.

If this is indeed what you are trying to accomplish let me know, and I can help you achieve a solution for this in your .story file.

Nicole, This sounds like what I am trying to do in one of my courses.  ( I sent you an email message pertaining to slides/layers/variables)  I'd love to be able to add to this discussion - hopefully my solution!
