Does cropping a character stops expression changes?

Hello, I've just found a curious possible side effect of cropping?

I was playing with having a guide in a circle & I want her expression to change on being clicked. This worked fine before cropping her, but afterward it didn't. I've included a non-cropped character just for reassurance and he changes expression fine. Any thoughts?

I've just given this a try and seem to be having the same problem!

If I insert a button and set the trigger to change the characters expression when the user clicks the button then that works fine, but nothing happens when the trigger says change expression when user clicks character.....hmmm!

Thanks Mahesh, but I did realize that as mentioned in my post "This worked fine before cropping her, but afterward it didn't. I've included a non-cropped character just for reassurance and he changes expression fine." Its the cropping/ changing shape that breaks it, hence why I think its a bug needing submitting?

Hi, Steven - Thanks for sharing the file. It seems that cropping the image is not the issue. Once you change the shape in the format tab, this creates the state from changing. I will file this with our QA team for review. If you do need a circle image to appear, you could place a shape above the character.

Thanks Christie, I seem to be having more issues with changing states!

In the file attached here, I want the horizontal bar to change colour on mouse over. It doesn't work initially, then it does, then the Normal darker horizontal bar disappears completely!

Is this because my 'button' is made up of an image and a shape?

I did get it working with hotspots triggering instead of the object itself but I have many of these so wanted to avoid adding to my workload.

I wanted to avoid bringing them in as one png so that i can resize the horizontal bar to suit the background holder that will be in later.

Hi, Steven -- Please excuse the oversight, and thank you for the clarification. I can see the issue you are referring to in the file. One workaround would be to keep the items separate, and add a trigger to the cloud to change the horizontal bar to the Hover color. Please see the attached file.
