"Automatically Decide" slide property resetting object states
I have incorporated a custom tracker, on the slide master, that increments when an unvisited slide becomes "visited" (I have a trigger to set a radio button off-canvas to change to the state of "selected" when the user visits the slide. I also have a condition that states NOT to increment the value for the tracker if the given slide has already been visited).
I have only been able to get this to work when all of the slides properties are set to "Resume Saved State" - which makes sense since if one revisits the slide the states of everything persist. The problem with this, though, is the all the slides' audio and animations have completed, so the learner is confused when nothing happens when they revisit a slide.
To alleviate that issue, I set the slides to "Automatically Decide" based on the info I found below:
"Automatically decide: This is the default choice, and it means Storyline will decide automatically whether to resume or reset the slide when users view the slide again later. Here's the logic: If the slide contains just simple objects and/or audio but no interactivity, Storyline resets the slide to the beginning of the slide’s timeline each time users view the slide. However, if the slide contains any interactive elements, such as buttons or any other object that includes a visited or selected state, Storyline resumes at the slide’s current state if users view the slide more than once."
However, when I do this, the radio button's state gets reset back to normal when revisiting (and then instantly getting set back to "selected" based on the trigger), so the tracker increments. This is not the expected behavior since it is my understanding that my "interactive element" (in this case a radio button located off-canvas) is NOT resuming the "visited" state of that object/interactive element.
Any advice would be helpful!
