Hovering Layer to Layer Issues

Feb 06, 2014

I'm currently trying to hover from layer to layer within a slide and it's not working. I can hover from layer to layer from slide to slide but not multiple layers within a slide.


Base: Hover over star (trigger: when hovering over star go to layer 2)

Layer 2: Hover over heart (trigger: when hovering over heart go to layer 3)

Layer 3: Hover over  arrow (trigger: when hovering over arrow go to layer 2)

This sequence will not work. I don't have the hover triggers on top of each other. My example includes about 50 layers but regardless I can't figure out a solution. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Philip and welcome to Heroes! 

Triggers can be a tricky one to figure out without looking at the Storyline file, are you able to share that here or even a sample you mocked up? In the meantime, you may also want to review the tutorials here on working with triggers and layers, as items such as trigger order and the slide layer properties are areas you'll want to keep a watchful eye on settings.

I just wanted to say thank you also to pointing out the slide properties Ashley. It has helped me implement a warning layer that doesn't interrupt the flow of the slide, as by default it has the "Hide other slide layers" check box ticked. You can imagine then how going from one layer chronologically to the next, and then a warning layer that hides all the layers progressed, could be an issue.

Thanks again for the helpful info and don't forget to have a nice day
