Pausing Layers

Hello Fellow Storyliners,

I am using a tip someone provided awhile back to build a custom play/pause button on the slide itself. I put a "pause" layer on the master template which is what the play/pause button is showing/hiding to toggle the play/pause on and off. I have the pause layer checked to pause the timeline of the base layer.

My question - is there a way to pause the timeline for a layer on the slide? With the functionality above, it simply pauses the base layer but does not pause stuff that is playing on an additional layer. Is that not possible? Obviously I can use the built-in play/pause functionality but we don't want the scrollbar and that's an all or nothing option.

Any help would be much appreciated.
