Change layer order in Story View

Apr 12, 2019

Hi there,

how do i change the layer order inside my scene?

I have several layer and regularly you jump with a NEXT button from 1 to 2 . .  .
But i have also a table of contents in my first layer with a link to every layer.
I can change the "priority order" inside the table of content - but i can not put the NEXT button above the table of content. So the layers get placed side by side instead of among each other ... (see pic)

Thank you very much in advance an have a nice weekend!

Hi Dom and welcome to E-Learning Heroes :)

Thanks for reaching out and sharing those images to help us understand what you are running into with your project.

It looks like you are asking about the slides in Story View.

When a course is linear - meaning Slide 1 > Slide 3 > Slide 3 etc., then the Story View will display vertically.

Story View will display horizontally, or side by side as you see when there are many branches and possibilities.

Your image indicates that from Slide 2.1, users may go to Slide 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, etc which is why you see the slides horizontally.

Your learner will not see this in the published output; it's just an overall view of your project.

Hi Leslie

thank you for your answer and the infos.

Yes, the user will not see it - but for me it´s not so "useful". My course is linear. You use it as a book. Normally 1 to 2 to 3  . .. But you also have the option to check the table of content and jump to 6. But its only a option, not the planned design.

At the same time it is a lot of wasted space and extremely small slides/names for me in the Scene Tab on the left....

PS: it would be already very helpful, if i could change the trigger priority not only inside category.
For example here, the help icon is separated from the help text. And it is not possible to move them next to each other, because one is a text and one is a symbol.

If you could just solve this problem, i could give (in my initial problem) the priority to the next button - and it would arrange vertical automatically . . .

Hello, Dom!

Triggers happen in order from top to bottom. If the arrows are greyed out, that means that the trigger order doesn't matter because they are attached to separate objects.

I'll let our team know you'd like the ability to move triggers in the list for organizational purposes. Thanks for the idea!
