Menu, Navigation back and forward button

Jul 18, 2018

I have created a menu that opens and closes when clicking on the three lines as shown in the screenshots below, however when clicking on the back button the menu re-opens and overlaps the back button. How can I ensure that the menu does not open when the back  button is pressed. Menu should only open when then 3 lines are clicked.

Hi Ashley,

Thank you for your reply, I have attached an example of the menu navigation that I have got, as you will see when the back button is clicked and the menu has not been closed on the previous page, it still appears when clicking on the back button. Also for example when on page 1 I click on the page 1 link nothing happens that menu stays open. I am new to Articulate, please could you assist me in adding triggers or point me in the right direction as to what I need to do. I have noticed also that when clicking on a link in the menu that already has been visited, the menu again stays open.

Thank you for your assistance

Thanks for sharing your file and allowing us to take a look Qasem :)

Trigger order is important, even on those Master Slides.

Your base layer was set to:

Which means you would jump to the next slide, never giving the 'hide layer' trigger a chance to fire.

Swap it to:

Now it seems to work as you intend.

Hope that helps :)
