My layers keep crashing in on each other

Nov 13, 2014

Hi all

I have a base and three layers in my slide and I have checked and rechecked the settings however the slides continue to crash on each overlaying one over the other when viewing.

I can't work out why as I have checked hide base layer and hide other layers but this continues to occur and am getting desperate. 

I really hope someone can help me work out what I am doing wrong here!

Hi Wendy
I have attached all the files as not sure which is the ‘source’ file
I hope this works ☺
Thank you so much

Hi Julie,

It looks like Wendy is helping here, but I wanted to point out that if you no longer have the .story file you won't be able to make any adjustments or changes to your published output or your course. The .story file is not included when publishing - so you would need to save it locally before/after publishing to ensure you'll be able to access it later.

Am having a similar issue with slide layers overlaying each other.

My eLearning module has a main menu and six topics, each topic has 4 learning steps (START, STUDY, WATCH and APPLY). It is these 4 steps that use slides to show or hide according to user menu selection.

Within each topic they behave nicely, but when the user revisits a topic from the main menu, the last (APPLY) will be overlaid on START.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated - just can't crack this one :)
