Show Next button on a visited slide without clicking through

Aug 05, 2014

I have 4 buttons that open up 4 different layers. Right now, I have the Next button Hidden until the user clicks all buttons, then they can advance to the next slide.

I've set the slide and layers to "Set to the initial setting" if the user returns to this slide.

Here's my question:

I don't want the user to have to click through all 4 layers again just to review a piece of the slide but my Next button won't appear until they do that.

How do I set my Next button to Normal when the user revisits a slide? Please help!

Hi Katie,

It may be because its Monday morning but I'm not 100% sure what you are trying to achieve.

If you want to use the same logic to control when the 'Next' button becomes visible and would like it to remain visible when a user returns to the Navigation slide, you could create a series of True/False variables for each scene (i.e. "Scene1", "Scene2") and the additional scene that one of your scenes branches again to (i.e. "Scene2.1") and set their default value to FALSE. You can then add triggers to the last slide of each scene that adjusts the applicable variable to TRUE when the timeline of the final slide begins.

You will also need to add a slide trigger to the Navigation slide that:

Action: Change state of

On object: 'Next' button

To state: Normal

When: Timeline starts


On condition:

"Scene1" is equal to True

AND "Scene2" is equal to True

AND "Scene2.1" is equal to True etc.

If this isn't what you are trying to do, could you upload your .story file so I can take a closer look?
