Storyline: Read the marker text before proceeding

Hi All. I am new to storyline and will need some assistance with this. I have created a slide which has a marker on it. I am using default "next" and "back" buttons.

Issue: when previewing the project, I am able to click next and advance forward in the course without having to read all the text which is contained in the marker.

I want the slide to not go any forward until the user has clicked on the marker. I have been playing with True/False variable - no luck so far.

I have created variable called "complete" and assigned it a "false" value. Then created trigger "Adjust Variable", along with other standard options i.e variable name, operation = assignment, Value = value - True, when user clicks - object - marker.

Don't know why it's not working . Any suggestions?

Hi Manpreet - 

First: Welcome to E-Learning Heroes. I'm glad you got your first question answered so quickly

Another option is to use a trigger to evaluate when the marker(s) are closing. If you select your marker, you'll notice you have some new events at the bottom of the list: Content opening and content opening.

You can evaluate the marker closing and enable the next button or any other action.

Here's a very quick overview on how that works:
