Trigger Help - Submit Interaction!

I have built a certification course that contains a variety of questions, including multiple layers on Pick Many question types, along with hotspot questions and single response questions. My issue is with the Pick Many and Hotspot questions. The INCORRECT layer is shown when the hotspot is clicked, but the specific trigger is to show the CORRECT layer (see attached picture of slide & triggers). 

Is there a way that my "submit interaction" trigger could be countering the "show layer" trigger? Also, do I need the "submit interaction" trigger at all? What is the purpose of this?

Hi Rachel

are you using the built in submit or a custom submit button.

SL takes the last click as the answer when you are still located on the slide

If you are using the player submit button - you are moving from the slide to the player

If you are using a custom submit button - because that is the last click it will show as incorrect - you'd need to show the custom submit button on a layer...see the attached 2 slide example for the difference.

If neither the above refer to your setup - can you share the slide - might be easier to explain what is happening if we see the setup.

I am not using a submit button. I am having the learner walk through a software simulation and (ideally) submit the interaction when a variable reaches a certain number. That number is added to each time a learner progresses to the next layer (new screen) of the simulation. 

Can I share my project privately with you?

Just wanted to tie up loose ends on this discussion for anyone with the same issue. I had my correct hotspot overlaying the incorrect hotspot which was cause confusion with the program. The fix is using a freeform hotspot and not overlapping them. Another fix could be to delete the submit interaction trigger, but I need the reporting aspect and thus need this trigger to stay. Thank you all for your input and Chino for pinpointing the exact issue! Cheers!
