Trigger not working with all grouped items

I have a slide that has 3 groups that consists of a text label and arrow.  When the learner clicks the 'group' it advances to the corresponding layer. When the layer's time line ends, the arrow's state changes it from red to green.  I have been able to get everything to work except only the arrows work to activate the trigger. If you click the text label, nothing happens plus the hand cursor only appears on the arrow.

Here is how I have the triggers step?  Would it make a difference if I made the label an image and grouped them?  Anyone have an solution?

Thank you in advance, Cheryl

My idea of changing the text into an image and grouping it with the arrow solved the problem of text box in the group not activating the trigger. 

If someone knows why a text box will not activate a group trigger, please still share the solution as the work around adds non-value added time to development.

Hi there Cheryl,

Happy to hear you were able to get this working, but I'm afraid I'm not getting the same results on my end when testing this out. I created a text box and a couple of arrows. I grouped those objects and triggered a layer to show when the group is clicked. This seems to be working whether I click on the text or the arrows. 

The only thing that comes to mind is that maybe something was covering up the text itself. 

Sorry for the time you lost working with this. If you run into this issue again, and you can share a .STORY file, I'd be happy to take a look and see what's happening.

Thanks!

Hi Cheryl

I also have the problem of the text box not activating the trigger when grouped to the image, at least in the preview mode. So I hover over the image and it turns into a pointing finger but not when hovering over the text, even though it is group with the image as Group 1. I have attached the file.

Best regards,

Hi Sean and welcome to Heroes! 

I don't know that Cheryl subscribes to this thread, but I wanted to ask, would you be ok to trigger the audio with a hotspot? I updated your file, to have a hotspot over the image and text, and now the audio will play regardless of which I click on, as long as it's within the hotspot area.
