Next button not appearing on rare occasions

Hi Folks, 

I have a slide that the user needs to open 5 documents on before the next button will appear.  The first trigger changes the state of the next button to Hidden when the timeline starts.  I have then set up a variable called ShowNext that is set at zero initially and is incremented by 1 each time a document is opened.  I then have another variable ShowNextTF that is initiated as false and change to true when ShowNext reaches 5.  I hope you are still with me.  My final trigger is to change the state of the Next button to Normal when ShowNextTF changes.

Ok all works fine, I have tested it in a number of browsers and different LMS environments all works as it should.  I then set up a pilot program with a small group of people from different locations and all with different PCs (about 60 people in total) in most cases the functionality works fine, however, I have two users where the Next button simply does not appear.  I have checked operating systems and versions of Chrome all are the same, I am thinking it could be a browser setting or something on the individuals PC as it works almost everywhere else.

If anyone has any ideas or thoughts on this it would be appreciated.

Many thanks

Hi Dean,

Thanks for detailing your course set-up! I can appreciate that it's frustrating when only a few learners are running into an issue, especially when you're unable to replicate the behavior yourself.

Next time you hear a report about this, see if the learner can advance by closing the course and reopening it. Perhaps going back through all five articles a second time will trigger the next button to change to Normal.
