Complicated state for an object

hi all, I am creating an interaction with different hotspots on a screen (i am using shapes with transparent fill/outline). With the current setup, the cursor will change to the hand icon once the mouse is over the shapes. I want it to be less obvious for the end users. 

How can I remove the hand icon in this example? thanks and regards,

JT

You can't remove the hand cursor from an object that does something. However, you can add it to other places on the slide so the hand cursor doesn't give away the answer.

I normally just add a bunch of transparent shapes to a slide that have a trigger like Add 1 to SillyUnusedNumberVariable when the user clicks. Because the objects do something, the hand cursor will be applied by Storyline and because what they do is really nonsense, it'll have no impact on the activity. 

Does that make sense?

Matthew: Can you please explain further as i have limited knowledge in the variable space:
