While hovering isn't working in prototype

I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong or if there is a bug but I am trying to open an overlay while hovering. If I create the interaction and hover over the item it doesn’t activate the interaction. If I change it from ‘while hovering’ to ‘on click’ then it does work.

So I’m not sure why the hover is activating - any tips?

Try to use Mouse Enter trigger and then in the overlay frame create a Mouse Leave trigger to close the overlay.
