Triggers for specific table cells

I want to have triggers activate when the user mouses over specific cells on a table.  Is there any to do this?

I know I could insert invisible shapes over each cell but this seems clumsy and like a lot more work, and it'd cause problems if I want to move or re-scale the table.

This seems like a pretty common function, so I'm surprised I can't find any information.

Well this is a problem.  I want to use tables because they handle spacing, however it seems like that's not going to work.  I can't make any state changes to show that an individual cell is hovered over or any triggers for that cell.  

No idea how I'm going to handle spacing if I'm just using text boxes on their own.  It is pretty difficult to control their size.

Hi Kevin!

Also, thank you Randy for your quick reply! You're exactly right. Storyline looks at tables as one object, so hovering over individual cells isn't a current feature.

Since "hover" is a built-in state, there isn't another built-in option for indicating when the user hovers over an object. If you're able to share your file, we could offer a more specific workaround!

You can do so by using the "add attachment" button in this discussion. Or you can share the file privately with our Support Engineers by using this link.
