Changing States from hidden

Hi all,

I'm trying to do a talkie animation bit in Storyline 2, using states to change captions (state1 -> Hidden -> state2).

When I set the trigger to change to state2 (which unhides it) I get a little flash of state1 before it switches.

Is there a way to prevent this, as it looks a little jarring.

Btw, the triggers are all cue points.

Hi Andrew!

Thanks for sharing the file. I was able to see the issue, and was able to recreate this in a new file as well. I am going to to send this to our QA team for review. In the meantime, you could make each state its own item on the timeline, and just move them to the cue point in which you need them to appear/disappear. 

I will update this thread when any information becomes available.
