Hey Ant, here is one thing you can do - set the revisit property  on the drag and drop slide to "reset to initial state"

Create a scene with a blank slide - add a trigger to the slide that jumps to the drag and drop slide when the timeline starts

Then on the incorrect feedback slide - change the retry button to jump to the blank slide when the user clicks the button.

There might be an easier way to do this but this works for me.

When the user clicks the re try button instead of going back to the main drag and drop layer you jump to a blank slide and then the bland slide says to jump back to the drag and drop question. It is just a little trick for resetting the drag and drop screen back to its initial state so that the user can try again

Hi John,

By default we've kept the drag and drop showing the previous answers on a retry/reattempt of the slide. If you'd like to see a different behavior we'd love to hear more as a Feature requests here. If you’re wondering what happens when you submit a feature request, here’s our process.

Hi Ashley,

I have a similar problem but my drag and drop interaction slide is within a question bank. So when I try to create a trigger on the 'try again' layer telling the course to 'jump to' a particular slide, all I can see is the first slide in the question bank. All other slides are hidden.

Has anyone found a solution to reset drag items to initial state when the user clicks retry?  I want the user to try once, have the items go back to start, try once more, and show the answer if they get it wrong again. The suggestions above about jumping to the current slide works fine for unlimited attempts but resets the attempts if you have set it to 2.

I have submitted a feature request to add reset to initial state on retry in the drag options of the question form.

Hi Rob, agree it's a messy workaround.

can't  you just have the attempt variable set to 1 instead (are you using a custom variable).

Perhaps share the slide and someone can take a look for you

Setting to 1 attempt won't allow the user to try again,

I want the user to try once, get a try again feedback and try once more (so, 2 attempts) then get the incorrect feedback which tells them the answer.

There is currently no way to set the drop objects to their initial state from either a trigger or drag options.  

Looking on the forum, it appears this has been a request since version 1. surprising it still hasn't been implemented.

I have exactly the same requirement as this. I have tried resetting the drag drop slide on return, linked this to the try again button, so when the try again button is pressed the drag and drop elements are back to their starting positions, but this also resets  the try count, so a loop is created.

I prefer the drag and drop items to go back to the initial state each time. Here’s an example you can download.

I think you could just set up a variable that tracks each time the user clicks the try again button, and after that reaches two tries then it could branch to a layer that shows them the correct answer.
