Extra layer on results slide - is it possible?

I wanted to have an extra layer on a results slide ((ie in addition to the pass and fail layers) that would display if a particular variable were true.

However, I'm having no luck making it work and am wondering if it's actually possible?

The results slide doesn't seem to recognise that the necessary variable has changed, although it definitely has.

Am I wasting my time here?

Hi, Katherine -- Thanks for reaching out, and I see that you have some ideas you can try! But, if you had something else in mind, it might be most helpful if you were able to share your .story file if you already have one created. Simply use the ADD ATTACHMENT button in the bottom left of the reply box and upload from there! :)

Thanks Wendy - that's pretty much what I did (albeit with many other variables in use as well) but the results slide wasn't picking up the change in the true/false variable so the variable-driven layer wasn't appearing.

One of the Articulate helpdesk folks suggested changing the true/false to a number variable, which has now worked (although now one of the other variables isn't working...). I've no idea why this works when the true/false one didn't or why the other variable now doesn't work, but hopefully the Articulate guy will fill me in.

Hi Leslie

Thanks for your help. It's frustrating to see so much hard work go to waste. It seems as if every time I try to fix the problem something else goes wrong. Having recreated the whole quiz I'm now finding the layers in the results slide don't display as expected.
