Does Selected State in Storyline not work with layers?

I have created a custome Menu that will "fly in" from the side using a button on the screen.  When the user selects a topic, I want the "topic" text color to change to indicate that they have visited this topic.  I have tried both "visited and selected" states on this layer and the color does not change.

When I do the same on the base layer, it works fine.  Is this a problem with layers?
