I have completed the attached slide and I cannot get the change of state to work. What is wrong?

I cannot explain why using the visited state doesn't work for this, but it's a problem I also commonly have.

My best practice for this is to avoid using the "built-in" states, such as visited and normal, and duplicate these to create custom states, as in the screenshot below.

I've attached an updated version of your .story file, hope this helps!

PS - the built-in states should automatically work great when used as intended, i.e. you should technically never have to trigger the visited state, for example, it should just automagically work.

Most of the time this works great for me. The original .story file you attached seemed to be having some major issues with both visited and selected though...
