Trigger Action Menus


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

Both the Set Trigger and Clear Trigger action menus have the same options.

Note: In the gesture Properties, trigger 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.


If clearing a trigger, select the trigger you need to clear. See also Clear a Trigger.

If setting a new trigger, click New Trigger, enter a descriptive name in the displayed dialog box, and click OK. See also Set a Trigger.

Important: Don’t use capital letters, special characters, or spaces in trigger names. Use underscores instead of spaces, if needed.
