Click on hotspot to show and hide layers with markers

Feb 08, 2013


I have several hotspots on the slide, each hotspot has a trigger, on click hide layer X and show layer Y. Each of layer X and Y has a marker/tickmark that should show up and the other one hide. I can't get it to work. the hand cursor is visible when I hover the hotspot, but when I click on it nothing shows up.

What am I doing wrong?

I've been looking at the file and it looks like it may be an issue with the markers. I removed one of the markers from a layer and added one of the default markers and now the layers are showing for that word when the hotspot is clicked. Even after removing the fill color the marker, it shows up.

Can you tell me if you made any additional modifications to the markers?

Good morning Catrin. I hope you had a great weekend!

It may be an issue with removing the animations from the markers. Do you think you'd be able to try this out by using a shape, instead? I'm just wondering if the functionality would be better for you. 

If you'd like me to work up a little example using the file, just let me know and I'll give it a try.
