Element Action Menus


These pull-out menus appear when you select an element action in the Add an Action menu or click an existing action block in the Events & Actions panel.

Note: You can hide only visible elements with the Show icon next to them in the Layers panel and vice versa. You’d typically use these actions when performing logic using Triggers and Counters.

Both the Show Element and Hide Element action menus have the same options.

Note: In the gesture Properties, element action menus appear as action blocks under the selected gesture. See Gesture Actions and Transitions.

Seconds elapsed

Appears only when At Time is selected for the action in the Events & Actions panel. Is not available for text actions for gestures.

Enter a decimal or an integer to indicate the number of seconds that needs to elapse before the action can take place in the scene. If needed, use the time value displayed in seconds above the timeline at the bottom of Canvas View.

This setting is frequently used to make an element appear or disappear in the selected scene.


Select the desired element, such as a gesture or an image, to be displayed or hidden in the selected scene during the demo. Typically used in association with triggers.
