I am building my first course and I used that very same approach.  I have 8 "scenes" with anywhere from 4 to 6 "buttons" to go to specific sections.  As each section is visited and you return to the menu to select the next sub-chapter the button turns from light blue to black.  As the button label is in white it clearly shows and lest the student know where they are.  Two problems that had to be overcome.  1.  When ordering the "scenes" there is no way to "re-order".  So if you start with scene 1, 2, 3 and later want to reorder to scene 3, 1, 2 you will have to start a new project and cut and paste from the old project in the exact order you want.  This is easily done.  2.  The next one is a killer so far and I am waiting for some magic from the technical support.  So if you have 4 "buttons" on the menu on scene 1 and the buttons go 1, 2, 3, and 4. and then you need to change the order, you can not!  You will have to cut and paste the buttons into the order you want.  If some one can help me on this barrier I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi Don, 

I see that Abel shared the following with you in your case, so I also wanted to include it here. 

I understand that you want to arrange the object triggers which was created automatically when you insert a button in a slide. Thanks as well for providing the screenshot of the trigger window from your project file. These triggers will be created automatically in the trigger window according to the order how you'd inserted it in your slide. Once you'd inserted a new button, the object trigger will always go on top of the existing button. Unfortunately, there is no way you can arrange it manually once you'd inserted them to your slide. We don't currently support this feature. I have submitted a feature request on your behalf. You probably already received an email from us letting you know. As an FYI, you can always submit feature requests here:http://www.articulate.com/support/contact/feature/ 

As a workaround, you might want to delete and recreate these buttons in order according to your preference. So you'll need to start from scratch by inserting the Help button, followed by Demo Video button, and last is the Learning Objectives button. If you opt not to delete and recreate the existing buttons, another option is for you to rename the buttons on your timeline and adjust the triggers associated with each button.
