Markers, the Next button, and revisitng a slide

I am using markers and their text boxes, in the hover mode. When the learner arrives on a slide, the Next button is disabled. I want learners to view every marker before the Next button is enabled. I have this coding okay using off screen objects. However, I want the learned to arrive at a slide, activate all the markers, go to the next slide, and if they revisit the first slide, not have to re-activate the markers in order to proceed. I thought I had a solution, but the Next button does not display as disabled for the first time in every slide. I am sure there is a little goober hiding in the coding, but I could use some insight on how to accomplish this.

Okay, talked with a coworker about this and here is the scoop. The course has 5 scenes. In one of them, I set a variable, Visited, to false. It would change to true when the used clicked the Next button. This process would go on in three of the scenes. Being not well versed using variables, I named all of the variables "Visited" throughout. This meant that the first time I clicked the Next button, the variables in the entire course changed. Of course, what I needed to do was name each instance differently. So, lesson learned.
