Hotspot trigger and other questions

Hi. I need help with this one. I have this scene on which there is an MCQ (created with a freeform). There is a recorded dialogue to listen to before attempting the MCQ. I give students 3 tries. The MCQ works fine. If successful, the transcription of the dialogue appears after clicking the Continue button on the Correct slide.

I want to give a grammatical explanation to students when they go through the transcription. To do so, I inserted a hotspot on a phrase and an explanation appears when students hover over the phrase.

1. When I preview, hovering over the phrase brings me back to the base layer instead of the grammatical explanation. I don't know why.

2. As mentioned, I gave students 3 tries for the MCQ. I would like the transcription to appear after the 3rd unsuccessful try. I don't know how to do that.

Thanks for your help :-)

Here is your file back with the trigger I added.  Maybe I don't understand your issue - sorry Christophe.

The second problem is solved (adding a trigger to show the transcription layer when the user clicks the Continue button on the incorrect layer (which displays after 3rd attempt). Thanks Wendy.

I have not solved the first problem, the hotspot that does not work.

did you see my Peek video above.  When the transcription layer shows and I hover over the hotspot the purple table displays - what are you expecting when you hover over the hotspot?

I expect the same as what you saw. Problem is, it does not happen. As mentioned before, when I hover over the hotspot the base layer reappears, not the table. I know it is weird, but that's what's happening. No idea why. As an experiment, I replaced Hover by Click and it worked. Bizarre ... How do you do this peek video btw. I might be able to show you that I am not drunk :-)
