Quickly Lock/Unlock or Show/Hide Multiple Objects

Oct 14, 2015

Hey everyone, 

I just happened to notice [today] the ability to click and drag to lock/unlock multiple objects as well as hide/show them on Storyline's timeline.


I assume this small detail can be helpful in development or distracting as it was for me to play with initially.

I get really inconsistent behavior with this functionality. Also, when I show/hide a group (either open or closed in the timeline) the grouped objects don't change, so I have to click them all individually. That can't be right, but I've got the latest software update.

Hi Sarah,

Our team is looking into an issue where Show/Hide Group doesn't work when Hide all is already selected as you'll see in this video. 

Also, if you choose to hide an individual item in the group, and then hide the entire group, you can turn that off at the group level and still have the original items hidden. So it'll remember the setting prior to that.

I'll include this discussion in the report our team is investigating so that I can keep you posted here!
