Experiment with the Sticky and Toggle settings. That’s where you will
make the behavior you want to see happen. Each of the elements needs
to be in the same (color name) channel, and each must have a
different index number. Elements within the same channel will swap
one for another when they are called into view. Initially visible
elements will be hidden in this process, I am pretty sure.
Okay, then try this. Make all of your Target layers have an opaque
background, then set the initially visible one to have a clear
background but don’t put anything in it. Put the “home” content in a
layer which is not part of the show/hide group.
So what happens is the home page content never really disappears. The
other parts of the show/hide group cover it when they are visible,
and when you click on the home button, the home content (which is
just a clear GIF) appears and everything else hides, which causes the
always-there home content to “re-appear”.

When the first layer is set to Hidden, everything works like it
should, however setting it to Visible screws everything up.
Thanks! That is a good idea. I won’t be able to use my fades, but
that’s a minor trade off.
No, it should work exactly the way you want it to, with fades.
Remember, fading out an opaque object covering another object is
visually indistinguishable from fading in a hidden object. Try it –
