Displaying / hiding elements

Dec 08, 2021

Hello everyone,

I'm currently developing a module for a client and he wants to have subtitles learners will display or hide as they want when watching a slide. I know there is a function in Storyline for it but given specific reasons, I prefer using buttons and triggers.

On the slide, I've got 6 successive texts that shouldn't display at the same time. I developed 2 buttons: 1 to hide the ST, the other to display them. It worked pretty well but after hiding / displaying / hiding then displaying again, it's not the right element displayed. For example, instead of being text3 displayed, it's text2.

I attached the slide in the message.

Thank you in advance for your help. 🙏

Hi, Veronique.

Thank you for sharing the .story file!

I noticed that you have one button that makes all six objects turn either hidden or normal at the same time. Even though the objects are supposed to appear at different points on the timeline, when the user clicks the button, it changes their states to Normal, making them all show simultaneously. 

I'm wondering if using a white rectangle that will switch from Hidden to Normal is a better solution for you:
