Hover state doesn't work immediately

Dec 06, 2019

I've been looing all over the forum to try to what the fix is, but the first time a slide appears the cursor hovers over a tab, the hover state doesn't work.  As soon as the cursor goes over another tab they all work.  Has anyone else experienced this? Is there an easy fix?

Hi Peter,

Happy to help here! I haven't seen recent issues regarding hover states.

If you can share your file, I am more than happy to take a look! You can share files in this thread here, or you can share it privately with me here. I'll let you know my findings and will delete it after having a closer look.

Hi there, Renske. Sorry to hear you're also facing this!

After some digging, we recently documented an issue in Storyline 360 where hovering on an object with a Hover state does not work on the first hover attempt. We'll keep this discussion in the know with any new developments!

Although I don't see any workarounds logged as of yet, we're happy to take a look at your .story file to see if we can offer tailored approaches! If you're able to share the course, please use this private upload link.

Katie - Is this documented issue related to Hover states only? We are experiencing issues on custom states (with triggers to change state of image when hovered over hotspot, return on unhover) where the image flicks off and the screen turns completely white rather than returning to normal. Not sure if this issue falls under the same issue as what you have described. 
Thanks, Caroline
