Hello Richard,

Several ways to do this, but here are a couple that come to mind...

If you need to "hide" an object based on a trigger (e.g. variable change, button click, etc) then you can change the object's state to "hidden" using a trigger. https://community.articulate.com/series/articulate-storyline-360/articles/articulate-storyline-360-user-guide-how-to-add-and-edit-states#trigger

If you want to hide the object for the entire duration of the slide layer, you can actually control the visibility of individual objects on the base layer using the eye icon in the timeline tools - https://community.articulate.com/series/articulate-storyline-360/articles/articulate-storyline-360-user-guide-how-to-work-with-slide-layers#hide-objects

Brian, to test it out I created a slide with a text box "hide on layer" duplicated the layer (called "test layer", added a button to get to the base layer, and clicked off the "eye" to the text box on the test layer (and added another box on the layer so I would know I'm there).  When I go to the test layer, the text box is still there.  What am I doing wrong?
