Editing Shapes - an issue

Some weirdness is happening, or it could be that I just need to step away from the computer.

Do the following & share your results:

1 - Go to Scene 2 Dell Difference

2 - View Slide Master

3 - Click on States tab

4 - Try to edit the State of Dell Difference or Schedule Assessment

 ** I get the Select a shape to view its states. But, I can't select those 2 shapes. Can you?

5 - Click on Areas of Storage to select that shape. Now I can edit the Areas of Storage shape. And, now that the Edit States button is active, I can click Edit States and then select the Dell Difference or Schedule Assessment shape from the Editing states on: box.

So, the question is why can I not select those other 2 shapes directly?

Hi Sandie!

Which sub-slide are you on for the Slide Master? I notice that if you try to select them in the second sub-slide, it doesn't work. However, if I try in the first (the one right below the main Master), or the last one, I can select all of them. 

After noticing this, I thought maybe they were being covered up. I went down to the timeline (on the second sub-slide) and moved them up to the top. This seems to have fixed the issue for me.

Can you take a look and tell me if it works for you now? I'm attaching the modified version.
