Non-repeatable actions

I'm experiencing an issue with a simple 'on click show text action' whereby I am using a transparent mask sitting over a key word in a sentence in a text box. The action linked to the mask (which sits on top of the text) simply shows a call-out box of additional text once it is clicked. I have a close button in the call-out box which hides it, but when I try to click my mask again, the call-out will not re-appear. Why would this action work the first time and not a subsequent time??? Any help appreciated. Thanks, Adam

    It would be helpful if you posted an example of the issue you are having. In the mean time is this what you're after?

    Hi Darrel, Thanks very much for responding. I have since identified what the issue was. It was to do with transitions. I had several items (text box, exit button and background image) in a 'Call-out' group and a fade transition selected at the group level. As soon as I removed the fade transition at the group level and left the group as 'none' in the transitions - suddenly the 'click to reveal' action, behind the associated text mask, which displayed that particular group became repeatable. I'm guessing that this is a bug, as I don't see why specifying a group level transition type should render an an action that shows that particular group, only able to be used in the first click instance. anyway, thanks again!

    Timing maybe. The element you want to click aint available for clicking because it is still in transition.

    Kind regards,

    Thanks Math - I worked out that it was a Group level transition selection bug, since removal of the transition at a group level and placing the same transition on each of the group items, the problem rectified itself.
