Layer visibility not locking

Jan 16, 2018

Hi there,

I'm having trouble with a course that I am building in Storyline 360. I have a base layer with 5 buttons that trigger each their own layer. I want the layers to pop up right next to the button that triggers it, leaving most of the base layer still visible. 

However, currently whenever I add a new layer, a whole blank slide-sized layer is added, covering up the entirety of the base layer. I also cannot see the base layer anymore even when locking its visibility.

How do I make smaller layers, that exist "on" part of the base layer, instead of covering the whole thing?

I figured out part of the problem the background colour on the layers was set to white. I set it to "no fill" and then the base layer could be seen. I changed the vision layer so you could see the vision button and not see the other buttons which is what I think you were also wanting. I also deleted the triggers making the buttons inactive at the start and then active when you clicked on them as that seemed redundant.

I hope this helps.
