Initial state and Normal state

Apr 19, 2016

Hi all,

I’ve got a problem that ruins the next interaction in all my Storyline 2 files.

“Next” button has three states: Normal=Yellow, Hover=orang, Disable= gray.

 When “Next” button initial state is Normal – everything is ok.

The problem begins when I try to prevent the progress to the next slide by changing the initial state to Disabled (gray) till all interaction ends, then the next button turns to Normal (yellow).

However the next time I’ll open the story file, the Normal state of the button with the Disabled initial state, changes to the color of Disabled (gray) and I can’t reset the Normal state.

I tried that with other states (changing them to initial state) and it always changes the Normal state.

 Does anyone knows how to fix that?

Hi Inbal

see if the attached works how you want it to.

I have set the second slide Next button disabled when timeline starts but changes to normal when timeline reaches 3 secs - just to test. Then you can move back and forward between the slides and it is not disabled anymore - I set the slide properties to resume saved state.

Hi Inbal!

Sounds like you are running into an issue that we have reported to our QA Team.

I updated the file that Wendy shared above, but I suspect you are going to see the same issue again.

Seems related to the Disabled state, so I've attached another story utilizing the hidden state and perhaps this will work better for you.

I will add this thread for our QA Team for both user awareness and so that I can update when applicable.
