Hi Michael.  Thanks for pointing out this behavior- I can also see it in your file, and I noticed that it seems to even affect the published output.  I tried troubleshooting with the shape formatting, having the picture tiled in the center and scaled down to fit within the oval, but it still showed quite differently in the preview.

I'm going to notify our team about this, and we'll discuss the possibility of a fix.  I'm also still testing some different workaround ideas, so if I come across any, I'll update this thread.  

I'm sorry this is slowing you down -- we'll put our heads together on it!

One possibility for a workaround would be to edit the Silent state and to insert a new oval shape and add the picture fill, instead of scaling down the original oval shape.  Then delete the original oval shape and position your new shape accordingly.  Creating a new shape seemed to work and retain its formatting for me.  I hope that helps in the interim!

Are you suggesting having them as separate objects and not use states?

Hi Michael,

What I think Crystal was suggesting was if you edit the state and insert a new item into that state and remove the previous item it often works well as it's not toggling one object back and forth but showing you a whole new object when the state is shown.
