I am still learning my way around Sliders and Variables, so this may be one of those, "Well, Duh!" questions. I know you can set a trigger to act when the slider moves to a specific step, or when between specific steps. My question is, how can you get it to act when it is NOT between specific steps? For example, let's say I want to show a layer when the slider moves and is between steps 2 and 5, then hide the layer when it is NOT between 2 and five. The triggers would, in theory, look something like this:
Show layer XXX when the slider moves If Slider1 is between 2 and 5 (you can already do this)
Hide layer XXX when the slider moves If Slider1 is not between 2 and 5 (as far as I can tell, you cannot do this)
Since there is not a "not between" setting for the trigger, is there another way to do that? The problem I have is that I have a series of characters that are different lengths, XX - XXX - XXXX - XX - XX - XX. I want to allow the user to easily move the slider to the center of each set of characters to trigger a layer explaining what the characters represent and to hide the layer when the move off. Since they are not equidistant I have set the steps to 0 -48. The result works but a heavy handed mouse user might have difficulty setting the mouse to just the right step to show the layer. Any ideas?
