Is there a way to hide or show certain layers of a title made in GT? like a shortcut to toggle a layer on or off? I have a graphic with a text box whos background needs to change according to some situations in the game, so right now I've got 3 layers of the different backgrounds, with the text on a 4th layer on top. If I can somehow disable say, layer 2, and enable layer 3 this would give me the effect I'm after. I assumed with layers in GT this should be possible, I just can't figure out how.

You can toggle layers / objects on and off using the PageXX GT feature.

The pic below shows a rough setup all you need to do is to stack the rectangles.

Will need the guys at vMix to advise if the "PageXX" can be controlled using the API

Is it a toggle though? If I have 2 objects, is there a way to turn them on and off independently? I've been playing around with pages and it seems as though you have to set each page up with things visible or hidden. So for 2 objects, I need 3 pages set up, 1 page for each object visible on it's own and a 3rd page with both visible.

If I have 3 objects, now I need 3 pages for each individual object, another page for each combination of any 2 visible (so 1-2 1-3 2-3) and then another page with all 3 objects visible at once.

More objects makes even more pages required, surely I'm doing something wrong here?

/edit: to clarify, my experimentation so far seems to indicate that Pages are state recording. Each page has some elements on or off. But pages can't be displayed simultaneously, it has to be one page or another. Is this correct?
