How to make a trigger for zoom region tool.

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday I did a short search to find a way for making a trigger for zoom region tool in Storyline but couldn't find anything. Then suddenly guessed maybe this trick works and made this example that proudly works well.

The main steps are as following:

  1. Place your picture and make a button to trigger zoom region (don't add any trigger to the button for now).
  2. Duplicate your slide and set the button on the first slide to jump to this slide when the user clicks.
  3. Make the zoom region on the second slide, start it for example from second 0.5 and end it to second 2.5 when the whole timeline is 3 seconds.
  4. In the second slide set a slide trigger that pauses the timeline when the timeline reaches to 2 seconds.
  5. In the second slide set a slide trigger that jumps to the first slide when the timeline ends.
  6. In the second slide make a button that resumes timeline on this slide when the user clicks.
  7. In slide properties of the second slide set "When revisiting" to "Reset to initial state".

Tadah!
Your recipe is finished, save and taste it.
