Hide reference and stop double on variable

Jun 21, 2018

hi there!

Just wondering if anyone can help me with hiding the reference and also with the variable buttons i am using. i need the forward button to stop at the last work instructions and then the back button to stop at the first work instructions.

The back and forward have a start and end value related to the screens. You know that when it gets to 4, you can hide the fwd button. And when it gets to 1 you can hide the back button.

Just add triggers to show or hide based on the value.

  • Hide back button when variable = X
  • Hide forward button when variable = X
  • Show back button when variable is less than X
  • Show forward button when variable is greater than X

Something like that. You can play around with ranges. You could also make the buttons disabled instead of hidden.

As far as reference, you only need that during production. I'd just hide it on the timeline when you're ready to publish.
