Shape tracing working in 1.7

I did a standard install of Orchard 1.7.
To get a better understanding I watched the 4-part video series by Brent Arias which is about 1.3. In his discussion of Shape Tracing he shows much more functionality than what I see after enabling it.
Instead of links to Web Matrix files, all I see is Orchard.Core.Shapes.CoreShapes::Zone under the Shape and Template tabs with nothing at all under Model or Html.
Mousing over regions on the page does not change the display in the Shape Tracer.
Am I missing a step, or is Shape Tracing no longer working in 1.7?

It works. You need to click on the regions highligted when you hover.

If you are into Orchard videos, Lombiq Dojo course videos are the most up-to-date. (4th video, explaining shape tracing and theme development)

Thank you for the link to the newer videos. I wonder if the busy people who maintain the Orchard website might swap in those links instead of the older ones.
Clicking on the highlighted areas in the Shape Tracer doesn't bring up much, but I will watch the new videos.
Orchard is great! Thanks o everyone who have made it what it is.

I discovered the answer to my problem. I had created a custom theme that kept shape tracing from working.
