Overlays are not tappable

Someone plz help me! I’ve had this problem for two days and I can’t seem to figure this out. My tappable overlays are not disappearing when i tap them. The portal and mobile app doesn’t say that there is an error with the overlay. The overlay isn’t approved yet but even when I tried with an approved overlay, it didn’t work still. :sob: :sob: :sob: :sob: :sob:

Here is my script

EXT. CITY HIGHWAY - DAY
&zoom reset
&overlay PRESENT DAY create
&overlay PRESENT DAY opacity 1 in zone 1
@overlay 5888768849018880_PRESENT DAY shifts to 24 290 in zone 1
@overlay 5888768849018880_PRESENT DAY scales to 0.712 0.712
@overlay 5888768849018880_PRESENT DAY moves to layer 13
tappable “PRESENT DAY”{
}

I think they don’t appear because maybe you scaled the overlay in another zone where u can not see them I had the same problem

hi !

your tappable overlays aren’t disappearing when you tap them because you haven’t specified a “clear” command in your script after including the tappable overlay command. so, instead of writing your script out like this:

you will need to write it out like this!

EXT. CITY HIGHWAY - DAY
&zoom reset
&overlay PRESENT DAY create
&overlay PRESENT DAY opacity 1 in zone 1
@overlay 5888768849018880_PRESENT DAY shifts to 24 290 in zone 1
@overlay 5888768849018880_PRESENT DAY scales to 0.712 0.712
@overlay 5888768849018880_PRESENT DAY moves to layer 13
tappable “PRESENT DAY”{
@overlay 5888768849018880_PRESENT DAY clear
}

i hope this helps <3

Don’t put the zone with the opacity command and the command for the overlay to disappear inside the brackets, after the overlay is clicked on

EXT. CITY HIGHWAY - DAY
&zoom reset
&overlay PRESENT DAY create
&overlay PRESENT DAY opacity 1
@overlay PRESENT DAY shifts to 24 290 in zone 1 and overlay PRESENT DAY scales to 0.712 0.712 and overlay PRESENT DAY moves to layer 13
tappable “PRESENT DAY”{
@overlay PRESENT DAY opacity 0 in 0
}

No it’s not that. It’s supposed to be in zone 1

Thank you! It works.

first of all when sou enter BELLA you then use commands for YOU which is different character so it is probably mistake

also its not clear to me where the problem with sitting is you use spot directing and sitting command… so she is not on right spot or what is happening?
