Slide layers - trigger interaction

Oct 19, 2014

Hi there! 

This is my first outing with Articulate storyline...(2). Enjoying the experience so far!

I've come across an issue that I can't find the solution to, would really appreciate some help. So.....

- I've build tabs across the bottom of the screen using buttons, triggers, and slide layer reveals.

- On one of the aforementioned slide layers, I've built a timeline interaction that also consists of buttons, triggers, and slide layer reveals.

- When I preview the timeline interaction, I mouseover each button and the hand appears which tells me that they're all active, but once I click on one button to reveal a slide layer, I cannot click on any of the other timeline buttons - I'm essentially stuck on that slide layer.

- I've tried fiddling around with slide layer properties but to no avail.

Note- there is no audio and I'm not using the timeline to time the course or anything.

Really appreciate your help in advance!

Hi Sue

there are no triggers on the layer to close it down and the background of the layer doesn't show through the base layer tabs for the user to click on.

I have added a X on the first and third layers and added a trigger for the user to 'hide the layer' when the user clicks the X.  You can have the shape with an initial state of 'hidden' and then to change the shape to normal when timeline reaches xx secs if you didn't want it to show straight away.

I am sure others will chime in with different solutions.

Good luck with your project!
