Corrupt Files & Slide Master Layers
I am hoping someone can assist. I have been away from publishing training for about 2 years. I had originally been using SL1 but have upgraded to SL2. This being my first course in SL2 I was excited that perhaps some of the bugs had been worked out.
In any case. I created a new file from scratch. On one of the slide masters I created a layer called "Error". I have a trigger on each slide that changes a variable to true when the timeline is complete. Prior to timeline completion the variable is false. I restrict users from moving forward in the presentation, so if they click the Next button before the slide is completed and the variable changed to true, the error layer triggers.
I have used this type of Error layer in most all courses I created in SL1. Well, in SL2 I'm finding this fairly simple system doesn't like to work. I had everything working fine when for apparently no reason, this function stopped working.
I read some of the threads on corrupt files and figured that I must have corrupted the files somehow. To attempt a correction, I created a new project and imported slides from the apparently corrupted file. All was good and the error layer worked again, yay.
I proceeded to publish. When viewing in Moodle, the Error function was gone again. I then went back to the SL2 files to see if the Error layer was still operational and low and behold it wasn't. It worked before publish and didn't work after. I did save the file after publishing (shouldn't have done that I guess).
Any idea of what's going on here? It's very frustrating. First course in SL2 and I'm finding buggy issues already. I'd really like to fix this layer issue and move forward.
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.
