Triggers for an initial Hidden state

OK, so I'm being brave and creating my first Storyline.

In it I have a character that I want to change poses while standing in front of the same background.  I've figured out how to hide the first pose but haven't figured out how to hide the second pose that should appear when a button is clicked.

So,

I want

character one showing when slide is first shown

Button is clicked

Character two appears .

Suggestions?

Thanks

Hi Karen!

I put together a quick example, click here to check it out. Is this what you're wanting to do? If so, what you'll want to do is select the character, change the initial state to hidden and apply a trigger to the button that changes the character's state from hidden to "Normal". 

I'm attaching my example, as well, if you'd like to see how I set this up.

If you have any questions, or if this isn't what you're trying to do, let me know

Thanks!

Hi Karen,

Great I'm glad to hear that will help. What you could do for the original character is add just another trigger to that button that changes her or his pose. You can have quite a bit of these triggers on the same button (as you can see I used it to change the states of the second character and the captions). 

If you have any questions, just ask :)
