Object disappears in visited state
Nov 26, 2012
I'm trying to reveal a piece of a picture when the user clicks on a graphic. I got it to work by copying everything but that graphic to a new layer, which reveals it fine, but something puzzles me...
I thought it might be easier to use states, so I set up the normal state for the graphic (covering the picture). Then I added a visited state where I deleted the graphic altogether. When I move between states, I see the graphic disappear on the screen, and I think I'm golden! Then I preview the page, and click the graphic and...nothing. It doesn't work.
I added a few more states (hover and selected) where the graphic is gone, and again they work when I'm clicking on the states, but not when I preview. I even tried just making the picture transparent, but that didn't work either.
So I duplicated into another layer, and that works, but why didn't the state change work? Or, is there another way to trigger a disappear animation on click? I lose my narration this way if they click early, because I had to hide the base layer objects so the audio stops (even though I unclicked 'pause base later timeline').
