Slider won't move to starting position when revisiting the slide

Hi, how do I make an interactive slider move back to its starting position when a user revisits the slide? The slider works as intended to "change state of Item to Normal" (from hidden) when slider moves if it's value is between Y and Z. However, at the end of the course, if you select the "start over" button and jump to the starting scene, when you get to the slide with the interactive slider, all the content is hidden again but the slider remains in position 7 (on the righthand side of the slide). In other words, the "handle" itself has not moved back to the left to the starting position. 

I have tried these 3 things but it has not made the slider move to the starting position upon revisiting the slide (although it does reset to Hidden all of the previously revealed content):

1) I added a trigger to "Set Slider to value 0 when timeline starts on this slide." 2) Set Slider to value 0 when the user clicks ContinueButton. 3) Using the "Edit Properties for Selected Layers" (gear icon in lower right hand side of screen), I selected for Slide Propertes, "When Revisiting: Reset to initial state."

How do I get the slider to appear back in its starting position when the user revisits the slide in the course?

Thanks for the reply and tip, Joseph. Yes, I have an Adjust Variable Trigger set up for that, just as you've written in the command. The items that appeared  when the slider moved (Normal state) change to their Hidden state again when revisiting the slide, but the slider button itself does not move back to its starting position.

Thank you Walt. I have attached a small anonymized version of the .story file here. To see what I'm experiencing in the module, move the slider all the way to right. (You can move it forward and backward to reveal/hide the slide elements, but leave the slider on the right in the eighth position when you click Continue button.) On the last slide in the module, click the "Start Module Over" button. When you get back to the slide with the slider, you'll see the elements are hidden again (as intended) but the slider handle remains in the far right position. It has not reset to the first position on the left. 

As you've noted above, I used both #1 and #3 together on that slide:  I added a trigger to "Set Slider to value 0 when timeline starts on this slide," and 3) Using the "Edit Properties for Selected Layers" (gear icon in lower right hand side of screen), I selected for Slide Propertes, "When Revisiting: Reset to initial state."

Can anyone see what I need to change or fix to make the slider handle move back to its initial position when the user revisits the slide?

Thanks!

I had the same problem and I triggered this:

SetSlider1 to value 0

 When the timeline starts on this slide

 

And Inside the layer that showing information when the Slider 1 moves, I triggered this:

Hide layer this layer

When the timeline starts on this layer

If Slider1 = value 0

It seems that works :)
