unable to add trigger to advance to next slide on a layer

Apr 02, 2015

I've just started using SL2 and my layers won't advance to the next slide. It's a very simple setup. On the first slide the trigger says show layer 1 when next button is clicked. Then on the layer, I try to add the trigger to advance to next slide when next is clicked, but it keeps putting the trigger on the original slide and not the layer.  I've tried leaving the trigger of completely, but nothing happens either. Any ideas?

Hi Carlene,

You won't be able to add a player trigger to the layer itself, but what you'll want to do is set up conditions of when the next button should go to the layer vs. the next slide.

So for example, on the layer you could adjust a variable "LayerVisited" from false to true, and then have another trigger for the next button to jump to the next slide on the condition that the "LayerVisited" is equal to true.
