Answers with pictures in groups won't shufflle

Feb 25, 2016

I have answers in quizzes that include text and pictures that are grouped. I have selected the shuffle option for the answers. The answers shuffle in the previews, but don't when published. I want them to randomize each time the user takes the quiz.

I've been recreating many of these slides. The main issue seems to be
that if a picture is included in a grouped answer, the answers won't
shuffle. A group can include text or shapes created in Storyline and
still shuffle, but not pictures. But, pictures as answers will shuffle
when not in a group.

The problem with the states not changing correctly in that file also
seems to be tied to grouped pictures with a shape. I ungrouped them and
made the duck pictures shuffle without the circles.

My problem is I still have another thousand slides to edit.
