Hiding slide layers on playbar drag

Oct 08, 2020

I have layers at the end of a slide timeline that open based on a user click, but if the playbar is dragged back the selected layer remains visible and covers earlier info. 

I'd like a suggestion oh how to hide a slide layer when someone drags the playbar. Is this possible?

Hi Erik!

Thanks for writing in. 

Right now, there isn't a way to hide layers when dragging the seekbar back. We're tracking requests for this feature, so I'll share this post with my team and circle back with any info.

For now, here's an idea that might help you unlock this goal:

  • Add a cue point at the beginning of the base layer's timeline. Then, add a trigger that hides the layer when the timeline reaches that cue point. Example .story file attached. 🔧
