I have this same problem. I am changing layers and want to hide a text box on the base layer when I hover each of the buttons. I want the text box to reappear/return to normal state when not hovering. I have Version update 6: 1507.2315 Restore on mouse leave is checked.

Try this workaround.

I put a white rectangle on the slide, below all other objects and set its transparency to 99%.

I gave it a trigger to set the text box state to normal when the mouse hovers over it (which is anytime that it is not hovering over something that hides the text box).

Seems to work.

Hi, Robert -- Thanks for your response and for the update. I'm glad to hear the workaround Walt provided will work for you at the moment. The issue has been submitted for review with our QA team and while I cannot provide a timeframe for resolution, I will share any additional information I receive here in the thread.

Hi Robert and Midi,

The feature requests can be submitted here and those go to our product development team and they'll be able to review and look at including in future updates or versions. We don't have a public roadmap, so there won't be an indication of where that feature stands but it's best to share it there.

Hi Yakov!

Sorry to hear that you've run into an issue, but glad that Walt's idea may be able to help you out.

This thread is a bit dated, so it would be helpful to know what version of Storyline are you using? The issue tied to this this thread is reported as corrected in Storyline 2 Update 5. Do you have a .story file to share as well?
