Variable Updating the State of Image in Master

Mar 06, 2013

Good Afternoon,

I'm having some trouble with one of my variables.  When the user completes the first unit, I have a varibale named "UnitOneComplete" set to true.  In my slide master, I have a green checkbox that is changed to normal when this happens.  On the slide where the varible changes, the checkmark appears, but once the user advances, it goes away..... Not too sure why.

Hi Shaun,

It sounds like the course is moving on to a slide that is using a different sub-level of the Master that doesn't contain that specific event, but I'm not quite sure. Have you tried out a variable on the slide that doesn't display the change? 

It's a little difficult to tell what's happening with that variable and Master without looking at the file. Any chance you can share it here, or send it to us privately?

Hi Shaun and Eric,

Every time you navigate to a new slide the master "restarts". So the reason you're not getting your checkmark back is because no variable changes (that only happened in a previous slide).

You actually have to add an extra trigger in your slide master in the form of : Change state of checkmark to Normal when timeline starts on Condition (value of UnitOneComplete = something).

* something = whatever satisfies the checkmark condition - probably a TRUE value in this case.

Hope this helps,
