Have you tried just creating your own set of matches with a freeform drag and drop. You can customize the match and all of the other content? May not be exactly the same but pretty close.


Hi Mark. I have but it takes quite a bit longer so i was just wondering if this was possible

It takes a little more initial investment in time, but in the long run may be worth it so you can customize to your hearts content. I would submit a request for the functionality but as far as I can tell it actually isn't supported. Seems to me like control 1 changes the back drop of selected items in questions like multiple choice, but the matching one are solid images. Sorry I couldn't help.

Hi guys,

Maybe you can check this out:

I know that for some...you can also play around but I hear it's normally the Control 1 that you have to tinker with.

Hope this helps. I haven't had the time to test it myself.

Thanks for this Donna. Unfortunately that doesn't seem to work either

Looks like it isn't supported. It just seems a shame that something so simple isn't so simple

Hi Gack,

There isn't a built-in way to resize those objects. 

I think this would would be a nice enhancement to be able to customize this question type a bit more. The development team does take feature requests seriously, so if you have an opportunity, this would be a good request to submit.

In the meantime, perhaps a freeform drag-and-drop interaction would work for you project instead? You'd certainly have more control over the size of the objects and you'd be able to customize them as much as you'd like.

Thanks!

Changing Custom 2 worked for me in regards to changing the colour of the selected box (but not the grey boxes themselves). The state is somewhat faded from the original colour  so I went with a tone that was darker than I wanted. I still ended up with 9 Custom Colour pallets by the end of it all though. Funny how you can't just edit an existing pallet--unless I'm missing something.

Below is the Peek link. The matching objects are washed out. I want them to pop with color, which will make it easier to line up the elements when matching.

Thank you for sharing that quick video, Chris. Super helpful information.

I can replicate the behavior you are reporting in a new file.

It looks like this is an issue we have reported:

Matching Drag and Drop shape fill and outline not retained in the published output.

Details list the preview as well.

I'm adding this conversation to the report as we track impact and so that we can update you here.
