Cloning an object in Storyline.


I want to use an object (such as shape or button) infinitely for example in a drag and drop interaction.

Is it any way to clone shapes when you interact with them in published project?

You can see this cloning in smart board programs such as smart notebook or ActivInspire. when you make a drag and drop interaction and drop an object to destination, a sample of it dropped on the drop target and the object remained on its place.

It depends on what you are wanting to do. The easiest way is to actually have two objects on top of each other, or as many objects as you need. If for some reason, you can't guess the number you will need, you might have to execute some javascript to copy the object when clicked on and paste when dropped into target.
