Removing effects and fills

Oct 30, 2014

I downloaded storyline 2 and I'm not sure if anyone else is having this issue, but I can't remove the fill from a marker and I can't remove the effects from a check mark.

I created my on nav bar using the markers, and I removed the fill and the fill border so when you click on the button the fill portion doesn't show. When I preview it I still see part of the white fill box.

Also, I added a check mark box to a slide. There are no effects on this box, but when I preview it, when you hover over the check mark box it glows. I've removed all the effects and it's still glowing.

Any suggestions?

Hi Cindy.

To remove the effects from the check box (looks like it's the Hover state you want to change):

  1. Click on your checkbox
  2. Click the "States" tab at the bottom (next to the timeline).
  3. Select "Edit States" 
  4. Click on the Hover state to select it
  5. Select the "Check"box" tab at the top of the screen.
  6. Select the "Shape Fill" drop down menu and select "No Fill"
  7. Click "Done Editing States"

Hope it helps!

I really appreciate the help guys. I have one more issue and I'm hoping you guys can help with that too.

I created a timeline. I watched a video and it works..well not quite. there are three objects on the timeline. there are three layers that go with those objects. if you click the object it goes to the corresponding layer and you should see the triangle on the timeline. I made it do that by changing the initial state on the timeline of that layer, but if you continue clicking the buttons you will notice that sometimes they take you to the wrong slide. it's confusing i know. Not sure where i went wrong.
