Hi Shelly,

Do you want to hide or show the text? Your first sentence says you're having difficulty hiding it, but then you say the initial state is hidden...and the user-click trigger works.

I've been able to both hide or show animated text boxes. See the two slides in attached

Thanks Rebecca!

I would like the text box to be hidden when the timeline starts, and then i added a change state trigger when user clicks on a button to change the text box to normal. That all works unless I try to add animation to the box, then it starts when timelines starts, ignoring the initial state and trigger. does that make sense?

Bummer. Nothing I've tried is working. Can't reverse it either. That is, add a new state and call it show. Delete the text from the normal state, making it the initial state. Add a trigger to Change the state of the text box to show when user clicks.

Maybe put it on another layer instead?

Hi Shelly,

I see the behavior you've shared here and am able to replicate it in a new file. It seems to only be connected to the "by paragraph" set up as mentioned by Rebecca. It looks like as a workaround you'd have to use the layer setting Rebecca mentioned.

I'm going to share this with our QA team for additional review, and I'll share additional information here once it becomes available.
