Using the Toggle State Trigger

Toggle hidden/disabled state triggers are exclusive to Storyline 360 starting with the July 2022 update. Project files that use this feature won't open in previous versions of Storyline 360. To restore compatibility, delete the toggle trigger.

Install the Storyline 3 November 2022 update or later to restore compatibility with Storyline 360. You can open and publish Storyline 360 project files that have toggle hidden/disabled state triggers in Storyline 3. However, you can't create or edit these triggers in Storyline 3.
