Trigger "Jump to this slide" missing from feedback master

Aug 19, 2022

I would like all incorrect responses in my course to let the user try again. There is a trigger action "Jump to this slide" in the slide layer, but I would like it to be in the feedback master. This trigger action doesn't show up in the feedback master. Is there a way I can make the feedback master let the user retry the question instead of putting the same trigger on every slide?

We programmers like to reduce or remove redundancy so that if we have to make any changes, we only have to do it once. Storyline does not abide by this philosophy. 

Yes, the built-in Try Again layer has a trigger that is automatically included. But a duplicate of this layer and trigger must be included in every question slide. Now, for the trigger to work, it must be attached to a button that is also in the layer. This button is also duplicated in every question slide. So now there are multiple copies of both the button and trigger.

Now, let's say my client doesn't like the color of one of the button states.  Instead of changing it once, I have to open the button on every Try Again layer on every question slide and repeat the changes. Hopefully, I won't make a mistake by forgetting to change one of the buttons or making the color of one of the button states slightly differently.

So the objective of this thread is to find a way to put both the button and its trigger in a feedback master, where there would only be one copy of them.  Apparently, it can't be done.
