Timline activated layer

Hi everyone,

this is my first post, so perhaps a simple question.

Is it possible to launch a layer via the timeline without the need for the user to click a trigger?

Also I tried to search the forums but no matter what search criteria I type in there are no results.

Does the search work? 

Any help, pointers in the right direction gratefully received.

Many thanks

If you want to tie the layer to an object that is actually displayed on slide, then by all means attach the shows layer trigger to an object that's visible on the slide. Using an offstage object ensures that the layer is displayed, no matter what is shown on the slide. Options, options, options...

Hi Richard and welcome to Heroes!

I'm glad Michael and Simon were able to assist you here, and I just wanted to let you know that the issues with the search functionality in the forums is something our web team is aware of and working on for future updates to the Heroes site. In the meantime, you may want to use a method such as the on Adrian describes below, it's what staff uses for searching.
