Unable to change trigger order

I am trying to create a similar effect in one of my project what Allison did here: https://community.articulate.com/download/storyline-quote-reel-template 

The Roadmap group seem to work fine when moving forward but doesn't work moving backwards. I tried to change the order of the trigger but it wouldn't let me. 

Any help would be much appreciated!

It's not a problem with triggers, it's not even a problem with motion paths; the problem is with perception. It actually is doing what you want, you just can't tell it.

Place some sort of unique identifier on each layer, and you will see that when you move backwards from layer two (week 5 - 9), you go to layer 1 (week 1 - 4). The problem is that on leaving layer 1, you moved the timeline to week 5 - 9, so when you return to layer 1, it looks you are still on layer 2.

Set your layers to return to initial state on revisit, and it will solve that problem.

There are times when the order of triggers can make a difference in what happens. This isn't one of them, because even though both triggers are attached to the same object, they fire on different actions, so they won't interfere with each other. In this case the trigger panel keeps them in the order of the names of the actions that initiate them, to make it easier for the developer to find them in the panel. That's why you can't change the order.
