Changing text during play in same slide

Hi, I wonder if it is possible to show and change text in the same slide in for instance a text bubble.

My timeline is about 12 seconds and I've got 3 different pieces of text to show.

I've tried to change it through the state of captation. But it has only the option to change after timeline ends.

Is there another smart way?

Best regards Kenneth

Hi Geert.

Yeah, I've tried that, but I think it would be clumsy to mess around with layers, if you could only change the actual object.

Right now my different pieces of text is put on top of each other, and placed in different times, on the timeline, in order to be played automatically.

Hi Kenneth,

Not sure I've done what you're looking for, but figured it was worth a shot. I've used states to change text in a caption box. The slide is 10 seconds long and the "hello" caption changes to a different language every 2 seconds. This is done by triggering the state changes with stages placed offstage and set incrementally on the timeline. Would this work for you? Or perhaps I've oversimplified.
