4.6 UI Pause Menu

I have set up a pause menu using the new ui from 4.6. I have the buttons set up to animate on mouse over with the animator and customized the animations. When I pause my game and the pause menu comes up, there are no animations. If someone could help me with this, I would be very greatful. Attached is a copy of my code.

Since the timescale is 0, the animations can’t play on their own
