Creating sequential events

Get help using Construct 2

I'm having trouble figuring out how to make events occur sequentially. I've got some text that flies in from the right of the screen. Once that is complete, I've got another animation that I want to start. Unfortunately, both animations start as soon as my layout is loaded.

To try to counter this, I made a boolean instance variable on my first animated object and set it to "true" after the animation was finished. I then included this as a condition for my next event, but it seems to be ignoring it.

Here's a screenshot of my events if you'd prefer to just look at those.

I'm brand new, so please be gentle. Thanks!

EDIT: Tried to link these, but something broke. I've just pasted in the URLs instead.raddevon2013-01-30 21:55:34

its because "start" starts outside the layout (event four) so it sets finished to true.

edit event four to add another condition:
start - compare x - x is less than -50 (or more if your text is bigger but it works for start)
