Child elements in a group do not respond to visibility toggle button

I am not sure if the title makes sense.

I use element grouping features a lot. When I group multiple elements into a group and try to toggle their visibility (show on / off), the child elements in that group do not toggle their visibility. 

Only the group parent toggles visibility, and that does not make sense.

To be specific, this happens only for toggle on. While setting the elements to visibility off state, the child elements respond. While setting the group visibility to on, the child elements do not respond.

Thanks Walt - your video helps to clarify: 

  • using the Group visibility to toggle on and off works on group children
  • and using the Timeline visibility to toggle on and off works on group children
  • but once you've used the Timeline to toggle off, using the Group doesn't work to toggle on visibility for children

I'll document this behavior for our team to have a look.  Thanks for pointing it out, and I'm sorry if it's causing you some extra clicks when working with your slides.
