How do I move triggers up and down?

I have many triggers on a quiz results slide and want to not only change the order, but move them from one group to another.  I assumed that the up and down arrows to the right of the Trigger commands would do that, but they seem to be inactive most of the time.  I also copied triggers and tried to paste them into another location to move them but that does not seem to work either.

I'm faril new to triggers and am probably doing something wrong.


Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Lewis 

you should be able to reorder within a group but not between groups - the object on the trigger is what sets its category e.g player, slide, object . 

If you want to share the .story file and let us know what you're trying to do -  someone can advise you. Just use the grey 'add attachment' button at the bottom of the post to upload.

Thanks for the prompt guidance.  I did not realize that the arrows would not move triggers between groups.  I do know how to do it by changing the group assignment.  I just thought that it would be natural to use the arrows both within and between groups, and suspected that there was a simple trick that I just didn’t know.

I am used to the Microsoft Style on applications where most tasks can be done in several different ways covering almost any potential intuitive way of doing things.

Thanks for the information.
