Toggle switch to show layers act funny
I use toggle switches a lot: 'Set SomeTrueFalseVariable to NOT'. I use them to trigger animations and sounds on the master slide or to fire other variable adjustmens across layers. I set them to fire when SomeTrueFalseVariable changes, regardless of its value. It makes for lightweight courses.
They work like a charm EXCEPT in this case:
I have 4 layers, layer 1 is shown at start of slide
I have two buttons on the base layer, button UP and button Down.
When clicked, they toggle a variable.
When variable Up is triggered, a trigger on layer 1 shows layer 2 and closes layer 1.
When Down is triggered, layer 4 is shown and layer 1 closes.
I have triggers like these on all 4 layers, opening the next, closing itself.
The point is to let the learner browse through different options, without having to duplicate buttons on all layers.
It doesn't work. When the toggle fires, strange things happen.
I know I can accomplish the same thing using different methods. But I am curious as to why it won't work! Is this a bug? Am I overlooking something?
