Can't get slider to work

Mar 25, 2016

Hi Guys,

So i've read a few tutorials and watched some videos and looked at some examples but I am doing something wrong which won't allow my slide to move across the slider and change the layer.

Each step should show a different layer.


Many thanks

Hey Kerry

This issue is that you have a different slider on every Layer.  So, after you show the first layer, you are no longer moving the same slider.  You have only created triggers for the first Slider on the base slide.

You may want to consider designing your layers so that they do not cover up your base slide slider and that will allow you to continue using that slider.

The current way you have designed it would require you to compound your sliders to all be adjusting the same variable. . .  it's doable, but might require you to have a higher comfort level with sliders.

Hope that helps.

Hi Kerry! 

Looks like Ron and Christie beat me to it, but I was taking a look at the file when you shared it here.

Perhaps my file will help you visualize what Ron is describing. You built the slider correctly, but your images and additional sliders on the layers prevented you from moving the slider as expected.

I've removed both and you can see that your slider works properly.
