Resume Saved State of Layer properties Storyline 360 latest version
I have quite understood when to use and when not to use the resumed saved state when revisiting. my boss advised to always set to initial upon revisits which makes the learner view every single layer over again and this is tedious and adds more time to an already exhausting course. In almost every compliance training course, the learner must visit every single object which triggers to show a layer providing more information. The learners are not able to advance to the next slide until visiting all of them. I now have a slide with 16 objects with 16 layers, change a variable to true when the timeline of each layer begins and hides the layer automatically at the end of the layer's timeline - you then return to base for more object selection. I've had to disable the next button when base timeline starts, and change it to normal when the base timeline ends with the conditions that all 16 of the layers' variables are now true. ugh. I've used same trigger to every layer with the same conditions, in case they don't go in any order. ok, so the problem I can't solve, is that if during all this tedious process, they hit the previous button to the previous slide, and eventually come back to this slide with all its layers, the states of the objects have changed to show they were visited and I would assume that all the variables are still true as well. However, now after revisiting this slide, the next button doesn't appear. The variables are still true, no? If I had never selected to go backwards using the previous button, regardless of the order, everything works, triggers a layer, changes variable, changes state, and eventually I get next button. However if I hit the previous button, I mess it up and I can't go forward at all now. please help me understand the proper functionality of the resume saved state if revisited (which I did not set at this point). I have it set to automatically decide right now and want to avoid setting to initial state which they'd lose their progress. Is it because the timeline of the base is starting again, and the next was disabled, until the timeline ends and the conditions of variables are true and I didn't wait long enough for the narration of the instructions to play (timeline ends)?
