Show/Hide Action Question

I want to set a rollover system pretty much the way the gallery page tutorial does, but when the user is not rolled over a specific image, I would like a certain image to always be there.

We are showing the contents of a book. The cover will show first in the large image area with thumbnails of the pages to one side. When someone is NOT on a particular page thumbnail, I would like the book cover to always be in the big image box.

Hope that makes sense.

Thanks.

It made sense to me, and it’s something I also want (not your book,
although it’s probably very nice, but similar!), and I’ve
experimented with toggle/sticky etc and nothing seems to work.

Why not have the book cover pic as a layer that doesn’t have the action applied to it.

The layers that are set to appear can be layered over the top of it.

That’s a good one - never thought of that.

Thanks

Try placing your “base” image below your stack of show/hide layer
images. Don’t apply any Actions to it.

Then make sure that your show/hide images have a solid background and
are slightly larger than this base image (or exactly the same size if
they all share a common border).

Set all of your show/hide image layers to Initially: Hidden and
Restore: Yes. This will cause them to hide the base image whenever
they are visible, and when they restore to their initial setting, the
base will be revealed again.
