Can Master Slides have Lightbox triggers?

May 30, 2014

As the title says, can master slides have lightbox triggers? I'm not having any luck getting that to work. Also, I've run into other limitations when using Master slides so I'm wondering if there is a list of pitfalls when using them? For instance, I've had issues getting buttons to support multiple triggers (only 1 supported) on masters. The issue doesn't exist on regular content slides. Thoughts?

Hi Jason,

I haven't had any trouble calling a lightbox via a Master Slide trigger. Are you using the correct layout with the trigger/button/link?

I've attached a really quick example that seems to be working for me. 

If you still have trouble, please let me know what other trigger you're using. Also, if you could share the .story file, I'd be happy to take a look.

Thanks! I have my lightbox working from Master BUT now I'm having a different issue. The lightbox buttons have a trigger to close the lightbox and another to jump to slide. It doesn't work no matter what order I shuffle them in though. Thoughts? I've tried scenes & slides 'cause I noticed an existing thread that points out issues with jumping to scenes from lightbox.
