You can view a simplified version of the course here. You can also download that .story file at this link. What is happening in this example is the “visited” states of the buttons are designed to look like an “in
Storyline makes it easy to create a custom state for any object on your slide. There may be a time where you’d like to use animation instead of a static state change. One question we received recently was, “Can I create an animated Selected state?” The short answer is “Yes,” …so let’s take a look at how you can do it! Add the Selected State To add and/or edit the Selected state of an object, select the item and open the States tab below the slide. Click Edit States and the “New” icon
