SL360 Slider not allowing numeric condition

I've added a slider and am trying to set the trigger so that each hidden text box becomes normal when the slider reaches the correct step.

When I try to set the condition: Equal to; 1, I get the message: There variable "1' must be numeric.

I've attached a snip of what it looks like and also the SL file.

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi Jenny

I tried duplicating your slide and then deleting the slider and inserting another one - but it is returning the same error.  I think the slide may be corrupt.

I created a new file with a slider and it works as expected.

Then I created a new project file and imported your slide in and adjusted the triggers and it's working as expected.

Oh dear. I tried a whole new project and yes it works. Would this be something to do with the update from SL2 to SL360 do you think?
Unfortunately it means I either don't use sliders if I'm reusing something originally created in SL2 or I have to recreate the whole thing again from scratch.

Hi Jenny,

Since Wendy found that creating a new Storyline 360 file and imported the original slides into it worked well, I would go that route before re-creating the course from scratch. Let us know if that helps!
