VA animated geo bubble map - How to get time series displayed at all times?

Hi,

 

I have created an animated geo bubble map, it works fine and shows where it is up to in the time series in designer.

 

BUT in viewer a few seconds after pushing play, the time series disappears and only the pause button is visable.

 

I want the user to be able to see where abouts they are up to in the time series - how do I stop the bar from disappearing?

 

Thanks,

My first guess would be a FLASH based error. Does it only happen on certain browsers?

This behavior is specific to the Modern (HTML) version of Report Viewer in SAS Visual Analytics 7.3 and is actually working as expected. In this version of Report Viewer, the animation bar automatically fades away so that the legend and other labels can be displayed. 

 

The Classic (Flash) version of Report Viewer will behave the same way as the Report Designer. If you prefer this, I suggest changing your default appearance setting to the Classic version of Report Viewer.

 

This behavior has been improved slightly in Visual Analytics 7.4. The animation bar will remain visible if your cursor is placed over the bar. If you move your cursor, however, the bar will still fade. 

 

I hope this helps!
