Thanks for the link. That is amazing.

I want to create a matching/memory game in a room environment (background). Users need to match the right numbers to the correct objects, therefore I need a combination of drag and drop (numbers to images) and matching (several correct drags and drops required on one slide or screen). I am thinking points could be deducted for each incorrect drag and drop (I know that's possible).

I am SO hoping that I can create this kind of functionality in Articulate 2 as well as Quizmaker. Do you know if it is possible or would I need to create a quiz in Quizmaker and then import it into Articulate 2?

Leslie, one more related question. 

I have created a drag and drop interaction, but on previewing I've noticed that one of my images used for a target has some unwanted animation applied to it. I don't seem to be able to edit the base layer that contains this image now, though. Is there any way around this block, that will allow me to remove the animation on the drag and drop target without my having to undo work?

As a short presentation to the St. Louis Storyline Special Interest Group (SIG), I put together small set of custom matching interactions using Freeform Drag and Drop for situations when you want to match images or when you have too much text and the auto-fit settings of the standard Matching interaction aren't helping.

Since it's related, I thought I'd share here in case someone else can make use of the files/ideas:

Storyline 2 source file

The source file show examples using images as well as shapes for your matching objects and I've also included an overview of the settings I used for each of interactions.  I hope this helps someone who's stuck.

Hi Kayleigh,

It does look like the files may have been moved on those links Diana previously shared.

I know that she's still active in the forums. You are welcome to reach out to the user directly via the 'Contact Me' option on the user profile if you do not hear back soon. Maybe she still has the files.

If not and you need some assistance, please feel free to share what you're working on, and perhaps we can point you to a more recent example/sample file.

@Kalyleigh and @Leslie...  Whoo hoo! I had just enough magic to locate the SL2 version of the source file I originally shared. I also edited my original post with the new download link as well.

Please reach out if you have other questions or if I can be of any help.  Good luck!
