Using a back button on a layer - return to Base Layer

Oct 04, 2017

Hi all, I'm sure this question has been asked and answered over and over, but I can't seem to find what I need. I have a base slide with a character introducing three other characters. When the user clicks on one of the three characters they are taken to that layer. I am using a back button to bring the user back to the base layer, but each time it takes the user to the beginning of the audio for the base layer. Is there a way to return the user to the end of the base slide timeline so they don't have to listen to the audio each time they click the back button?

Hi Robert!

Sounds like a feasible idea. Let's see what we can come up with :)

Does the Back button:

  • close the layer
    • if so, be sure that the settings for the layer are set to pause the timeline of the base slide


  • jump back to the base slide
    • if so, be sure that the slide is set to 'Automatically Decide' or 'Resume Saved State'

Hopefully that helps you out, but if you need further assistance - seeing your .story file would be super helpful. You are welcome to share here and I'll take a look.
