Can I prioritize a slide trigger?

Hi I am using articulate storyline 1 and I have been having a small issue with triggers. I currently have my previous button set to subtract 1 from a counter and I used this on my master slide so that it would be applied to every slide. Unfortunately, this makes it so it does not recognize my other trigger on the previous button slide that is on individual slides. This makes it impossible to navigate backwards, but continues to subtract on the counter. Is there anyway for me to make the slide triggers a priority or make them simultaneous with the master triggers?

Hi G!

Articulate Storyline lets you apply multiple triggers to the same object. You can also apply triggers to master slides and content slides. Here are the rules regarding the order in which all these triggers get executed when learners view your published course:

  • If there are triggers on the master slide and content slides, the master slide triggers execute first.
  • If there are multiple triggers on the same object that are triggered by the same action (such as "on click"), the triggers execute in the same order in which they appear in the Triggers panel (top to bottom).

To learn more about adding and managing triggers, see this tutorial.
