using power point triggers in Presenter?

I have created a great interactive slide for a course.  The user clicks on various images on the slide and the images then exits via a sliding door.  Everything is set up by using triggers in the custom animations.  It works fabulously in the power point, but when I preview it in Presenter or publish it, nothing works.

Do these triggers not work in Presenter?  is there something I am missing or do I have to scrap this slide from the course?  I am really hoping to keep this slide as it is a great interactive piece in this otherwise dry course on process improvement.

Hi Karyn,

I know this isn't want you want to hear, but some animations in PowerPoint are supported by Presenter, but not all of them. I believe you're using the "Animation using a trigger "Start effect on click of..."" animation, but I'm not entirely sure. If so, though, I'm afraid that animation type is not supported. 

If you'd like more information on what animations are supported, please take a look at the article below:

Articulate Support > Supported PowerPoint Animations

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Yeah, since posting the question I found that info. I was using the start effect on click of...

Does anyone have any other ideas how to possibly do something like this?  I guess what I am trying to create is a drag an drop type activity, but I don't have Storyline  So if anyone has any suggestions, please send them my way:)
