    Hello,

    I’ve been desperately seeking for an option to prevent a Timer to trigger

    I have a book app with two ways of following/reading the story:
    – one version, I want it to play in automatic mode. For that I created a timer for the each page that triggers, when page starts, a serie of actions (audio and images at a timed pace (created a serie of timers within the action panel). Result: the reader follows each page a bit like a movie. Once the page is done (all actions are played), reader can either reload the page or move to the next page that triggers page 2 timer, etc.

    – second version, I want the reader to read the story at its own pace, and therefore I would like the page timer not to be triggered. Meaning the reader would be in a “manual” mode, that would allow him by a click of a button play each action at a time.

    Version 1 and 2 share exact same image/audio files. It’s just a question of timing/pace.

    Would anyone have a code/solution that would solve my issue?

    Of course, the easiest solution would be to scrap one of the versions…but I would rather keep both if possible.

    Thank you,

    Thank you, but I tried that and doesn’t work in my situation.

    In my main/homepage I have two main buttons that should allow reader two ways of experiencing the story: Option 1) go to next pageA and start my story in automatic/autoplay mode. Here I have a page timer that triggers an action that includes several timers (showing text dialogues at a timed pace with audio); Option 2) go to next pageA and start my story in manual mode. Meaning, I don’t want the page timer from option1) to be triggered! I want the reader to manually/click button to show dialogues one after the other at readers pace and not at pre-programmed pace.

    I have no problem with option 1. Works fine. However, I have problem with option 2). What ever I tried, the page timer (Add Timer/Trigger Panel) still runs. Which makes sense as it is part of PageA properties. However I would like it to be disabled in my option 2)

    When I tried to set a but to cancel or pause the page timer, it just didn’t.

    I don’t know if I’m clear:-(

    A variable to control on/off timer could be helpful. These tutorials are for audio to be turned on or off. Do you like to do the same thing for timer?
