Triggers to layers

Oct 11, 2018

Does anyone know if it is possible to create a trigger in one slide that will link to a specific layer in another slide? If so, how would you go about doing that? Fir example: the Next button in slide 1.2 will open layer 2 in slide 2.2.

Hi Edward, you could use variables in your triggers to achieve this. For instance, you could create a true-false variable "Layer2" with the default value "False." Then, create a trigger that adjusts the variable to "True" when the user clicks the Next button on slide 1.2 (note: make sure this trigger comes before the trigger that jumps to the next slide on your triggers list). Then on slide 2.2, have a trigger that shows layer 2 when variable "Layer2" is equal to True when the timeline starts (or whenever you need it to appear).
