Hover State Not Previewing

I'm working on a project that has many many hover states in it. Some of these work fine while some are just behaving totally wrong. In the state editing tab, the hover state appears correct but when I preview or publish the project, they are different. Any ideas why they would be behaving any different than is shown on the edit states tab?

Here's an example. The last response shows up correctly when I'm viewing the state edit tab but when I preview it or export it, it shows completely different text. So far my solution has been to delete the current hover state and re-do it. This seems to be working but it's tedious (since I have so many of these) and it doesn't get to the root of the issue. I don't know if the hover state is just glitching or if it's a bug or if it's something I'm doing wrong.

PLEASE NOTE: this file does have swearing and audio so either wear headphones or turn your volume down :)

Good morning, Paris. Sorry you're at this roadblock!

While I don't have a solution to share from Jessica's support case, we're happy to investigate what's happening with the hover states in your file! Could you help me with these key details? 

  • What version of Storyline are you using? You can find this detail by clicking on the Help tab, then About Storyline.
  • Is this happening during Preview, in the published output, or both?
  • With your permission, we can take a look at your .story file and will delete it after troubleshooting. If that works for you, you can upload your file privately to our Support team here. We'll test in a similar environment, and let you know what we find!
