Triggers making me crazy - Help please

Hello heroes!

I am trying to make the attached do the following:

When user clicks marker 1 - text box 1 moves along motion path 1 and text box 2 moves along motion path 2 and marker 1 changes state to hidden.

Marker 2 which has been hidden will appear.

When user clicks marker 2 - text box 2 moves along motion path 3 and text box 3 moves along motion path 4

Everything works fine until marker 1 is hidden, marker 2 does not appear.

I cant work out what I am doing wrong, I'm still a bit of a noob with storyline this is making me very sad :(

Would greatly appreciate any pointers.

A thousand thanks in advance

Hi Denise

I think I've made it to work.

I've done the following:

  • Changed initial state of Marker 2 to Hidden
  • Deleted trigger making marker 2 hidden when timeline starts
  • Added a trigger to make marker 2 normal when animation (motion path 2) completes against text box 2.

Hi Glenn, thanks for responding. Apologies for the delay in responding,  I closed down shortly after posting and went on holiday (not because of this! :))  When I import it, it goes a little with wonky but I think I can work it out from here.

Thank you so much, I really appreciate you taking the time to help me out.
