Triggers misbehaving on Master Slides
Today I was giving a demo on creating a simple badging system in Storyline and it didn't work as expected. I put my demo together yesterday and everything worked fine then. In the class, some people found that it worked and for others it didn't.
I created two quiz questions. I have a variable set up to store a number with an initial value of zero. On the Correct layer for each quiz question, a trigger adds 1 to the variable. I know this is working because I set up a reference calling the variable and it gave me a result of 2 after I answered both questions correctly.
On my master slide, I have a badge icon with an initial state of hidden. Here's where I kept running into a problem: I was trying to create a trigger to change the state of the badge icon but when I clicked OK nothing was saved in the Triggers menu. This was strange as it worked fine for me the previous day. I'm suspicious that it's some kind of bug as I was able to do it eventually after testing other types of triggers.
It would be great to clear this up so I can report back to the demo participants. Thanks in advance.
