Zoom Icon

Hi!  I just saw a Storyline 360 module (that I was able to see the content) that has an icon that allows you to zoom the image.  I looked all around and could not figure out how it was done.  I did not see a trigger, the only thing I saw was that the image was an .emf.  I did not see anything in the states either.

(I don't have the contact info for the author).

Does anyone in the community know how this done?

According to this: https://community.articulate.com/series/articulate-storyline-360/articles/articulate-storyline-360-user-guide-how-to-format-pictures-screenshots-characters#size, which is a new thing I just learned researching this topic, the Zoom Picture only works if you insert a picture, then resize it smaller. Zoom Picture zooms it to its original size. So, you need to put the picture in a graphic program, and enlarge it. Then import the enlarged version, and shrink it.

Or here's another way I have done it. I imported the picture, put a zoom region on it, took a screenshot of the zoom result, and pasted that into the zoom state.

I like using the zoom icon - however some of our learners are simply clicking the zoom icon and leaving the image in the enlarged state - the slides are set to move automatically and their experience is that the voice over starts, but the new slide doesn't appear - instead the enlarged image just stays put. Is there a way to make the image go back to size prior to moving onto the next slide?  Do I simply add directions or is there something I can do?
