Help needed with checkboxes in Storyline

Hi everyone, I have created a slide showing the total number (actual value) of check boxes selected.  However, I need this total value to be adjusted when the learner deselects a selected check box.  What do I do to indicate that a selected checkbox has been deselected?  Is there a specific state/variable/trigger I should be using?

For a running total, you can use two triggers for each checkbox:

Add  1 to Total when user clicks checkboxXX if state of checkboxXX is selected.

Subtract 1 from Total when user clicks checkboxXX if state of checkboxXX is not selected.

If you just need a total when the user clicks some other object, you need only one trigger per checkbox:

Add 1 to Total when user clicks Object if state of CheckboxXX is selected, etc.

You should create two triggers, but pay attention because the order is important. The first trigger must subtract 1 from the counter when the box is selected and the condition is "if check box state is not equal to selected". The second trigger must add 1 to the counter and the condition will be "if check box state is equal to selected".

Adding these triggers in a different sequence will change the end result of the count.
