Hover states in Articulate Storyline 2


I am creating some hover states for some key words on my slide where a description will pop up when hovering.  The first one I created worked just fine but when I tried to make the other ones, the background text (but not all of it) shows up.  I can't figure it out.  Why would one work and not the others when I'm doing it the exact same way.  I'd appreciate any help you can give me.

Thank you very much

Hi Wendy,

Thank you but unfortunately I can't do that easily.  I know, sounds suspicious...but I work for a government agency and uploading can be tricky.  Setting up the hovering is so easy which makes me think it's some glitch in the software.  You know, why would doing it one time work and then doing it the exact same way not work.  Hmmmm, a mystery for sure.

I'm having this issue as well. I didn't see this thread when I was doing my initial search and posted my question and file.  I got a response which appears to be headed in the way of an explanation, but I don't quite understand it. I thought I would post here, since some of you have tackled this. I was able to sanitize and post my file (I sympathize, Sharon, same issue with gov work), so you can see the four states that are working and the fifth that isn't.  It seems that the problem may have something to do with the position on the timeline???? :-/ Here's a link to my post and file, along with the first reply/explanation.
