How can i stop a user from clicking onto a side layer from the base layer before they have read or listened to the information on the base layer

Hello Monica,

There are a couple of ways you can approach this - probably the simplest is to just cover it up with a transparent shape (hotspot) and then have that shape leave the timeline at some point when you are ready for them to make a selection.

This is simple but not foolproof since the user could use the keyboard to tab to the items underneath the hotspot.

So, another option would be:

1. create a disabled state for your object (buttons - have this state built in)

2. set the initial state to "disabled"

3. create a Change State Trigger of that object when the "timeline reaches" your desired time.

Hope that helps.
