Issue with text box staying up after layer closes?

Feb 09, 2021


Can anyone figure out what's going on with this slide where the text boxes on the layers won't hide when the rest of the layer does? This wasn't happening before I dropped the audio in.

Many thanks in advance!

Hi, Kathleen,

Thank you for sharing your .story file! 

For each layer, it looks like you have exit animations set for the notecard and the red X, which is why they disappear when the timeline ends. If the user presses X before the audio ends, then the layer works as expected.

A quick solution would be to add a trigger on each layer to Pause timeline on this layer when Audio completes.

Let me know if this works for you!
