Thought I was being creative...

Well, I thought I was being creative by creating a shape off the slide to hold all my "layer triggers." But it doesn't seem to work with conditional triggers. Is this the case? Or am I doing something wrong?

I have a shape called, "Disable Menu," which contains about 30 or so triggers that basically says the same thing. The only difference is that the number changes when it needs to disable a choice within a menu when a user has made their selection.

The basic trigger says:

Change state of x (object in menu) to Disabled (state) when the timeline starts on y (the object name off the slide) on condition that z (name of true false variable) equal to True.

It works when the trigger is attached to layer, but not the object off the slide. 

I don't like to have a million triggers attached to the layer because there isn't any quick way of finding a specific trigger (when you have hundreds of them). That's why I thought putting a shape on the outside of the slide and attaching the trigger to that object when its timeline starts was a good idea. Turns out it doesn't work. Does anyone have a better way of doing this?

Thanks in advance,

Jesse.

Good call... Thanks for your replies. You were both right, as usual - it wasn't necessarily the order of the triggers, but the properties on the layer. I needed to keep it on "Automatically decide" not, "resume saved state." Not sure why I had checked that option. But that was the issue.
