Choose layering order after images from slide layers complete their motion path

Aug 11, 2020

Hi everyone! 

Is it possible to select the arrangement of slide layer images after they have completed their motion path in Storyline? I have 6 images on a base layer in an overlapping order. Users will click on each one and it will move to the center of the slide so they can read it. At the end of the base layer image motion path it will be hidden and the same image in a slide layer will cover it. After reading it, they will click on an 'x' on the slide layer image to trigger a motion path, intending to return the images to their 'original' order as presented in the base layer. Unfortunately, they return and cover the other images, so the user can't see the remaining images to select. I'm not able to figure out how to do mirror the original order of the images on the base layer. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hi Nicole,

I'm not sure if I have fully understood what you are after, but hopefully the attached will give you some ideas.

I have set up two motion paths for each image, one to move it to the centre and one to return in to its original position (the second motion path for each image is set up with a Relative Start Point).

When the motion path to move the image to the centre completes, the appropriate layer is shown. When the user clicks on the 'X' in the top right corner, the motion path to return the image to its original position is activated and the image layer is hidden.

Hope this helps.
