This article applies to:

You may find that base layer objects show even when they should be hidden if the following conditions are true.

  • A trigger shows a layer when one or more objects are in a Visited state.
  • The layer is configured to hide base layer objects.

This is a known issue. Here's how to avoid this behavior:

Flash and Articulate Mobile Player output

If you're publishing for Flash and/or the Articulate Mobile Player, use either of the following options:

  • Add a trigger to the layer that hides the base layer object(s) when the timeline starts.
  • Move the layer objects to a new slide, and configure the original trigger to jump to the new slide rather than showing a layer.

HTML5 output

If you're publishing for HTML5, move the layer objects to a new slide, and configure the original trigger to jump to the new slide rather than showing a layer.
