Show the next layer when the user presses a key

Feb 09, 2015

I have set up a slide with six layers. I want to show all the six layers in a sequence from 1 tot 6 when the user presses the space key. To make this, I have inserted a trigger on the base layer to branch te user to layer 1 when he presses the space key. On layer 1 I have inserted a trigger to branch the user to layer 2 when he presses the space key and so on. This works out, but when the user is on layer 2 and he presses the space key, he will be branched to layer 1 again instead of layer 3. I already checked my triggers, but I think they are all correct. Does anyone see the problem? You can find the file in the attachment. Thanks!

The Keypress trigger on the baselayer interfered with the ones on the various layers. I added a variable that signifies if a layer is active. The keypress trigger on the baselayer is only executed if that variable is false (meaning no layer is currently shown). Hope that's what you wanted.
