Global Objects Across Slides
Hi Storyline Experts,
I don't know if there is any entity known as GLOBAL OBJECTS but I would like to discuss this a bit here. Here is what I want to do (simplified version of my otherwise complex course structure).
I have 3 different slides. And all three slides actually have 3 buttons. Buttons 1, 2, 3. So technically when I am on slide 1, button 1 should be highlighted. When I am on slide 2, button 2 should be highlighted. When I am on slide 3, button 3 should be highlighted. Now it sounds simple. I can set the states of the buttons and go ahead with it. But the issue here is that each slide contains its own instance of Button 1. So I actually have 3 different Button 1.
So how can I control the state of these 3 instances of button 1 across the 3 different slides. One solution that comes to mind is by using variables. And I am going to try that right after I submit this question. Is there some other solution? Note that I cannot use slide layers since my content varies quite significantly across the slides.
I would really look forward to your responses here.
