markers with open content box at start of timeline

Oct 25, 2013

I have a slide that has multiple markers on it.  I would like one of the intro markers to be in its open state when the timeline starts.  I can't figure out how to do this?  Thanks for any help!

I don't think that is possible using the marker feature.  It has characteristics assigned to it by Storyline.  The open position is not a state, so you can't add a trigger to open it at the beginning.  If you require this, you may need to make a button instead.  Or, you could create the popup box yourself, make it appear at the start, and then make it disappear when the user hovers somewhere, or clicks something, etc.
