Layer on Master Slide shows objects hidden by another layers


I have some layers on my master slide, like menu or contact info, that are set to don't hide other slide layers. I basically put them on top of slide or another layers when user click button.

However I've noticed (and I'm pretty sure it's some new case, as I've been using master slide layers for really long time and didn't see that, or maybe I've just been lucky) that when I have Layer A on my normal slide and I hide something from base layer using 'eye' icon, and then try to 'invoke' layer from master slide, the hidden obejct unhids.

I think that's quite unwanted behavior? Because you cannot control that in any way and makes using hiding 'eye' icon useless.

Hi Mateusz,

I'm sorry you're experiencing this issue with slide master layers! It looks like you're running into this bug we have reported where:

Hidden base layer objects appear on the slide layer when the Slide Master layer is also open.

We'll continue to keep an eye on it to evaluate how many customers are impacted and what impact it has on courses.
I don't have an ETA on a fix, but you're in the right place to stay updated on this bug's progress.

Hi Mateusz,


Please find the attached. I've try to revised your file.


If you don't want to show everything at your base slide, just cut and copy your base layer content to "new layer" than add the trigger: show new_layer when the timeline starts on this slide" to your base slide.


Hope this help. Thanks.
