Hint Captions

Aug 13, 2019

Currently my hint captions show up the first time that the user clicks outside the hotspot, and then disappear after 3 seconds.  Subsequent clicks outside the hotspot do not trigger the hint caption to appear.  How do I make the hint caption appear every time the user clicks outside of the hotspot?

  1. Put your hintbox on a layer with an entrance and exit animation
  2. Set the timeline of the layer to 4.5 seconds (to allow for the animations)
  3. Set the layer to hide itself when the timeline ends
  4. Set the layer to "reset to initial state" when revisited in the Layer Options
  5. Lastly, on the base layer, create a trigger to open the layer anytime they click in the specified area.  This may require you add another hotspot under your other(s).
