Caer Elis rune puzzle

I hit a snag in the game in Caer Elis where I am either missing something obvious, or the solution is not obvious enough, or it is actually a bug.


I am trying to solve the "War of the Gods" puzzle. First of all, it took me quite a while to notice that you get a book when klicking on the interactable object to the right of the puzzle area. That should probably be made more prominent than just an entry in the log.

I can get the first symbol (the small square from the book) to light up, but can't seem to progress any further...no way to "lock it in", and if I move from the plates, the symbol goes dark again. No other combination causes any of the other symbols to light up
There is also nothing to click once the symbol lights up (at least nothing that highlights with left-alt). Which would be difficult to do with the last sybol where you need 5 people, anyway.

Anyone can give me a hint what I am missing?

Got it, you are only supposed to move a single person when switching from symbol to symbol. That should have been more clear from the start...

Agreed that this is very nonobvious, especially since the proportions of the second figure (parallelogram) strongly suggest a 1-4-6-9 solution instead of the 2-5-6-9 it actually wants.
