How to disable "Next" button until all tabbed buttons have been visited

Dear Community,

I am using a template from eLearning Heroes' Downloads. I have disabled the "Next" button using a trigger but it does not become "Normal" even after I set the condition for it to be - after the tabbed buttons have all been visited. 

the goal is that only after all 5 buttons have been clicked (visited), the "Next" button becomes Normal. 

Appreciate your help.

You need a series of triggers like this:

Change state of Next Button to Normal when state of Button 1 changes if state of Button 1 is equal to Visited and state of Button 2 is equal to Visited and state of Button 3 is equal to Visited and state of Button 4 is equal to Visited and state of Button 5 is equal to visited. 
Change state of Next Button to Normal when state of Button 2 changes if state of Button 1 is equal to Visited and state of Button 2 is equal to Visited and state of Button 3 is equal to Visited and state of Button 4 is equal to Visited and state of Button 5 is equal to visited.

Dear Matt,

Thanks for the tip! I did as you advised and it worked.

However, once I link those buttons out to another scene/slide, and learner returns to the slide by clicking the "Previous" button, the states of my button no longer stays visited. 

As a result, the "Next" button doesn't appear even if learner has gone through all 5 scenes. 

So I am back to square 1. Pls advise.

Have attached the file. Content not all in yet, so its only 7mb. Thanks.

Thanks for responding Lauren. I found an alternative solution via a separate thread by James Holt. Using true/false variables instead to control the behavior.
