Phantom Slide Advance Trigger

Hello there,

I'm hoping someone can find out what's happening with a couple of slides in my Storyline 360 project because I'm at a loss.  I've attached the project file to this post to (hopefully) make the issue easier to diagnose.

There seems to be a phantom trigger in Slide 4.10 that has the Back to Scenario Menu button taking the user to Slide 4.11.  I don't have this trigger on the button, in fact, I have a trigger instructing the button to take the user to Slide 1.3 Main Scenario Menu.  My only thought is that it has something to do with the Submit Interaction trigger (the phantom jump doesn't occur when I delete the Submit Interaction trigger), but I have the exact same interaction elsewhere in my project, namely Slide 3.18, and the same Submit Interaction trigger works just fine in that slide.  I've tried deleting the Back to Scenario Menu button from Slide 4.10 and recreating the button with new triggers, but the phantom jump to slide 4.11 is still there, even with a new button.

I need the Submit Interaction triggers in their respective "Best Ending" slides as this indicates completion of the scenario to the LMS (Skillport 8.0) when the user exits the course, so eliminating that interaction doesn't work for me.  I just have no idea why that particular phantom trigger would exist in one slide (4.10) and not another (3.18).

Thank you in advance for any assistance!

The fact that when I hover over the trigger path in Story View, and the jump to 4.8 trigger doesn't highlight, makes me think it is a built-in trigger (see the attached video.) My best guess is that when you created the slide, and deleted the Correct and Incorrect layers, there was some sort of glitch. The built-in jump to next slide trigger from one of them  didn't get deleted.

The solution is to remove 4.8 from being the next slide to 4.11. In story view, move it under any other slide (like 4.7) until the little blue arrow appears to the left of the other slide title. You can get away with this only because you don't have any jump to next slide triggers on these slides. Once the phantom trigger has no next slide to jump to, it disappears. At least when I tried it, it went back to the beginning of the scenario.
