Trouble with triggers in preview

Hoping you can help me. I've created triggers to disable the next button until audio completes. When I preview slides separately, everything works fine. But when I preview the whole show, only the initial slide behaves appropriately. Others do not. 

Can an you help me with this?  Again triggers on slides are identical across the slides and they work when only previewing one slide at a time. But when I preview whole show, triggers only work on first slide.  

Thanks!  Mary

Thanks SO much for offering to review, but I've tried unsuccessfully three times to attach my file. Am assuming you want it in the Storyline format to view triggers, yes? Keep getting "Serving Error 404 - file or directory not found...."

Should I save it in some other format?

Please don't give up on me...SO grateful for your help!

Hello Mary,

You can try to upload the file again, sometimes a refresh will clear the 404 Error.

Please make sure that you are working locally with your file as described here.  Also, have you tested a published version of the course to see if it works? It is best to test these in their intended environment for best function.

Please let us know if you continue to have issues.

Yes to both questions…and still incurring same Server Error. Have successfully published on Scorm Cloud, but still experienced problem I'm describing in terms of disabling the "next" button. Everything else works just fine.


Since I can't upload file successfully, thought to describe what triggers appear on the slides incase that can help:


Object Triggers

Sound 1


Set Nextwarning equal to true

   when the mediacompletes


Player Triggers


Jump to next slide

   When the userclicks the next button

    If Nextwarning isequal to True


Show layer Warning

    When the userclicks the next button

    If Nextwarning isequal to False


I think I saw a thread somewhere suggesting it’s better towork with SLIDE triggers versus OBJECT triggers, but the instructional videodid not suggest that might be a problem.


I tried to find a place where I could “reset” the variable “Nextwarning”on each slide but don’t know how to do that exactly.


So sorry for confusion on my end and so grateful for anyhelp you might be able to offer.
