It would be GREAT if Lectora actions had a checkbox ‘Wait until previous action complete’ (or even a dropdown menu ‘Wait until <X> action complete’. Best would be some kind of timeline (like Premiere, AfterEffects) to show visually when an action in a group will fire and how long it will run for.

Setting delays can get extremely fiddly, especially when you have fade transitions with varying speeds and a bunch of MoveTo actions thrown in the mix. It gets even worse when you need to go back and add something to the middle of of a long animated sequence and have to re-time the values!

Animated elements and nice transitions go a long way in terms of user experience and engagement with the learning, but building sequences that have more than ten or fifteen steps gets prohibitively complex.
