Object visibility resets after relaunch even with bookmarking

I have SmartShapes as buttons that hide once selected and increment a variable by 1. This way, Captivate and the User know when they've selected all the buttons on the slide, a new button appears allowing them to proceed.

 

If the user exits the course partially through it, my LMS administrator is telling me that the selected/hidden buttons are becoming visible again on re-entry and has to start over. We would like the buttons to retain their visibility state (as well as the variable count). Is that possible?

 

The course has bookmarking enabled (that was by default, nothing I did) and is an HTML course. Is there something I am missing for this to be possible? Thanks in advance.

 

Edit: I saw I had "Send Tracking Data at End" in the quiz preferences on. I changed it back to Default template so it sends data on every slide. We noticed that my variable DOES bookmark its count if you exit the course and re-enter. However, the object visibility does not retain still. Any help is greatly appreciated! Even if it is "Nope! Not possible!" lol Again, thank you in advance for any assistance!

You would need to associate the visibility with variables for each, then on slide enter run an advanced action to sets the visibility based on the value of the variables. The onlyother way to do this would be to store variable values in localStorage with JavaScript, retrieve the localStorage and set the variables and visibility.

Thank you! That makes sense. I'll give that a go.
