  2. Select the highlighted trigger within the script box.

  3. Choose the type of animation.

  4. Select the Direction, Velocity, Duration and Delay of the animation.

  5. To move a trigger, select, click and drag the trigger to the desired words in the script, where you want the animation to enter and exit from.


  • If required, you can add animation using the sidebar located on the right hand side of the canvas, under the Animation section.
