Mouse Hovered Over and Adjust Variable
May 07, 2013
Hi there. I'm a new Storyline user and I'm just trying to understand the following.
I put a graphic "Hover for a Hint" on a slide with a trigger that shows a hint caption by changing its state from hidden to normal and restore on mouse leave. Works perfectly as you would expect.
Then I decided that I wanted to track the total number of "hint requests" so I created a TotalHint variable and added another trigger to the same graphic which has the action "adjust variable" by adding 1 when "mouse hovered over" event occurs.
When I mouse over the graphic it adds 1 to the variable HintTotal as you would expect. However, when I "mouse out" it also adds 1 to HintTotal. This is unexpected (at least to me) as the trigger is "Mouse hovered over".
I ended up deslecting Restore on mouse leave and it now works properly. However, I still don't understand.
Can someone provide an explanation?
