Revisiting Slide with Triggers

Oct 12, 2020

I'm really struggling to get this working properly. I have a slide (1.2) that begins with the layer (Text 1) showing. When the user clicks on the button on that layer, it hides the layer. There are triggers on the page that the user needs to complete in order. When the user returns to the navigation selection slide, after clicking on the button to visit another slide, the text layer appears again. How can I stop this from happening?

The problem you have is that the text layer is set to show every time the timeline starts on the slide (i.e. whenever it is visited).

All you need to do to solve the problem is to add a True/False variable that is initially False and then changed to True when the introduction text has been seen for the first time. You then use that variable as a condition for showing the text layer when the slide is visited.

In the attached version of your project file, I have used a variable IntroTextComplete, but you can obviously change the name to whatever you wish. The variable is triggered when the user clicks on the arrow marker to close the text layer for the first time.

If you have any queries, just get back to me.
