Hi Diane,

Yes, it is possible. You just have to get creative with the triggers.

The way I do something like that, is I move the actual selections to a new layer. Then I can use triggers to make the actual selections on the base layer, based on the user's actions.

Here is an example for you to look at.

Thanks Dave, 

You Rock! So, it looks like Rectangle 1 must be selected, and when either Rectangle 4 or 7 is selected, both are triggered to Selected. I can make that work for me!

Two questions:

1) Why use a layer? Why not put the rectangles on the base layer with the same triggers?

2) Would it confuse the learner to select one rectangle and see the states change for both?

=D

Hi Diane, 

You could probably put the second set of rectangles on the base layer, and add the triggers. I find that putting them on a separate later provides some separation, and makes it easier for me to set up the triggers. It also makes it easier to make sure that the learners are only selecting the rectangles on the layer, since you can prevent users from clicking through to the base layer with the layer settings.

I would also suggest that you may want to change the rectangles on the first layer, so that the selected state looks the same as the normal state. This way, they won't show through when learners make their selections.
