    The flash behaviour change the actual visibility of the object If I remember correctly, thus it is not a bug, so you should set the visibility afterwards

  • Closing as this is actually by design, that 'Stop Flashing' makes the object visible again. Workaround: just move the 'set invisible' action to after the 'stop flashing' action.

  • OK, I worked around it easily.

    I thought you had two different "variables" to check state, so you could see if a flashing object was already invisible (in my "weltanschauung", the flashes of the invisible flashing man are invisible).

    I use to employ "turn invisible" to get rid of objects without destroying them despite of events they could activate.

    Well, this feature has an advantage. I can make the object visible by simply making it flash, so I can save the "make visible" action.
