Press enter to close layer

Working in Storyline 360.    I'd like to give users two options to close a layer.  Either hit my "go back" button or just click enter.  On one of my slides, with a dozen feedback layers, I set two triggers to hide whatever layer they are on.  Either pressing enter or hitting the "go back" button will hide the layer.  That works flawlessly. 

On another slide, I tried the same set-up and it won't work.  I have the triggers set-up identically but for some reason, the only way to  close the layers on my other slide is to hit the "go back" button.  

I can't for the life of me figure out why the "When the user presses the Enter key" trigger will work on one slide but not the other.  Any ideas?

Hi Kevin,

I've been playing with this for a bit, and the trigger will always fail for me if I have not clicked on any object on the layer. I wonder if on the one that works for you, users have interacted with the layer first.

Does the failing one work if you click on a blank area of the layer first?

I tried adding an offstage text entry box on my layers, placed at the bottom of the timeline so it would receive focus when the layer was shown, and that worked. I had to set the layer to reset to initial state on revisiting to make it work repeatedly.
