How to create an automatic progress bar in Articulate Storyline

I've created a video on how you can create an automatic progress bar in Articulate Storyline. 

I placed the progress bar is on the master slide. The progress bar calculates which state to show based on the total amount of pages in your course and the current page.

So you can add and remove pages to your course without adjusting the progressbar on each slide in your course.

The way i build the progress bar in Articulate Storyline is first published by Pete Brown in a blog post on https://cooeeproductions.wordpress.com/2013/03/24/showing-the-learner-a-course-progress-meter-in-storyline/ in 2013

I had the same issue with a quiz question. I ended up setting up a variable for it to show it's been visited so it was like "Q1Visitied True/False" set to false as default. Once you press "try again" it sets value to true so the radio button thing works (for some reason thats the only slide it DOES work on).

Hi all. I'm trying a simpler version of this, which should be...simpler. But I can't get it to work. No calculations, just a variable that is added to every time you click SUBMIT, and a trigger to change the state of the progress bar. But I can't get it to work. Any ideas? Project is attached.
