Once again I've got myself into a position where I'm sure its possible but I can't figure out how to do it.
i'm looking to show an image that shows simple instructions on how to navigate the virtual tour. I want it to be visible as soon as the tour is open and then for it to close as soon as someone is active on the tour. if only there was a way to activate a timer when the tour gets its first interaction.

any help around this matter would be great as I have a fairly eager customer.

Thanks again

Hi Tom,
Please find attached a project.
How this works is the screen tint and text box have the action, mouse enter hide self etc.
So it does not hide straight away there is a timer with an "active" container which covers the screen.
The idea is this prevents the mouse interacting with the screen tint or text box until it times out, then as it hides it allows the mouse to interact with them.

Of course you could just give it a mouse click action to hide which would be even easier :-)
