Previewing slides vs scenes

I've been previewing my slides as I go in my scene to make sure all my triggers are functioning.  Now I've completed the entire scene I went to preview scene and now several of my triggers aren't working?? Closed the scene preview, went to check slide and they worked on slide preview again.... ugh.  The triggers are state changes for the most part.  Which way will it publish?  Like the slide preview or the scene preview??

Hi Edie,

Depending on how theses slides are linked throughout the scene that could by why the triggers are not working as expected. It would publish the same as an entire preview of the course, so if you're having a difficult time figuring out what the issue is, you are welcome to share a copy of the .story file here with us to take a look at.

In general, the built-in states, (especially Visited) are at their most reliable within the same slide. If you visit other slides, they can get confused, and that may be why things aren't working when you preview the whole scene. Ashley is right, if there is any discrepancy in how it previews, previewing the entire project is the closest to what will happen when it is published.

Hi Edie!

Thanks for sharing your file and allowing me to take a peek. 

It looks like you are jumping to another slide before state changes are allowed to occur, which is probably the issue you are reporting here.

Articulate Storyline lets you apply multiple triggers to the same object. You can also apply triggers to master slides and content slides. Here are the rules regarding the order in which all these triggers get executed when learners view your published course.
