Visited State continues to show hover on shapes

I've created an interactive pyramid to as one of the slide to one of my training projects and when in preview mode, I click on the shape it shows I have visited it but when my mouse hovers over the shape it shows the hover state again.  The bottom of my pyramid happens to be pictures instead of the shapes Articulate has to offer.  Once I click on it, the visit state shows even if I re-hover over the picture.

 

What I'd like to have happen is once I've visited it to stay in that mode BUT if the learner wants to revisit the shape/picture they can.  I have included a sample file of this problem.  Please let me know if you know of a solution!  Thanks.

Hi Wanda, 

I'm not sure I understand what you're seeing vs. what you'd like to see - so I wanted to describe what I saw.

Clicking on the bottom two levels of the pyramid showed the layers and the state of them stayed in "visited" and I didn't see "hover" again. Clicking on the middle or top layers of the pyramid, I was able to see the hover state again even though the items are in the visited state. 

I do see that they are able to revisit it by clicking on the pyramid section again and it goes to that particular layer. So that element does seem to be working.

I want to make the middle and the top layer stay in visited and not see hover again like the bottom layer of the pyramid.  How do I do this?

Thanks!

Hi Wanda,

Thanks for allowing me some time to play with this. It seems that as you mentioned the difference is using shapes vs. images - and when using the shapes, the hover is going to continue to occur if the user is hovering over it regardless of being visited. The options to change this behavior would be to use a custom hover state (not the built in one) that you could control with a trigger based on the item being in the normal state. Or, instead of using the visited state having the objects be disabled - as once it's disabled, the hover state will no longer trigger - but the user wouldn't be able to click on it either. 

Sorry there isn't a a better method to work with these states - do you have the other pyramid pieces as images?
