Maybe I’m missing something (it wouldn’t be the first time), but the animation you put together has a timeline that plays the sequence in reverse order after the first pass. I’m looking to play in a sequence like 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4, as opposed to 1 2 3 4 4 3 2 1. I want the contents to always play in a “one-directional” ordered sequence no matter where it is paused.
I put together an example, using the “one additional timeline” example you suggested and the “two additional timelines” example that MaxZieb suggested (good practice for me). Hopefully, this will explain my sequencing issue. And maybe there’s still a way to do it with your timeline, but I haven’t been able to accomplish it. (The “Inner HTML” thing was a good trick for changing the button text. Thanks for that tip!)
