Layers and triggers in Slide Masters

Jul 25, 2012

Hi there,

First of all: thanks for this wonderful authoring software, love it

I would like to use a slide master with layers and then add a trigger to change the state of objects on the sub-layer - but it just doesn't work.

To make this more understandable:

On my slide master there is a button that should do the following:

- Change the state of objects on a slide layer (within this slide master) depending on a variable

- Show the slide layer with correct object states

Any idea how to make this work?

Thanks for your help in advance!
