Color when hovering over shapes

Sep 11, 2015

I am having an issue with my shapes changing to a darker color when hovering over them when using the "drag over" trigger in Storyline 1. Is there a way to change the color? I've tried setting the shape color to the exact color of the background and I've tried making the shape color 100% transparent. I've also attempted setting the Control 1 theme color but that only appears to work for buttons.

Actually, I am going to open my initial question back up. I want to go with the slider I built I just want the dark shaded squares to not appear when dragging. Can someone suggest how to get rid of this?

Michael, thanks for your suggestion but what you've created does not appear to be a slider and some items disappeared when I used it. See the screen-grab I've attached.

Hi Leslie,

The original file is the story file Hover_Shape_Color.story listed within my initial post above. I've re-attached it to this post. Also, please note this is not a final product. There are other triggers and such I am messing with but I do not want to continue on until I know that I can get rid of those pesty dark squares when dragging! Thanks!

Hi Christy!

I've worked with 2 other co-workers on this since I cannot replicate the behavior that you are mentioning. 

1/3 can see what you are reporting and they are not on a Mac, so strange indeed.

At this point, I would advise that you adjust the size of the text boxes so that it doesn't extend past the line, then if it does show for some users, then it doesn't look unexpected. The transparency is set differently for the rectangles as well and the 1st one is marked as 100% transparent, but the others are not.

If this does not alleviate the issue, please reach out to our support team here so that we can further assist and get some additional testing. 

Honestly, it's just hard to assist if I cannot replicate.
