Drag and Drop Help

Dec 03, 2014


I have a picture of a map that is divided into states and I would like to be able to drag a magnifying glass to the different states and then a layer appear each time the magnifying glass is dropped onto the different states.

However I seem to not be able to get it to work - I have tried a number of ways - with changing states, using hot spots etc. But either way it doesn't seem to work properly. 

If I used Drag and drop freeform - it woudn't work as you can only click the drag item once...can anyone help? I have attached a file to show what I am trying to do.

Basically you should be able to drag the magnifying glass to WA and then the WA layer shows and etc etc.

Hello Amy!

I took a look at your file, and It does seem to be working as expected. When you drop the magnifying glass on the WA shape, the WA layer appears. If you drop it on another shape, that corresponding layer would appear then. I added a trigger to 2 other shapes, (SA, NSW) and it seems to be working.

Please let me know if there is something I am missing.

Hello Amy!

I was also unable to recreate the issue you are describing. Could you verify the published output here is working as expected?

I did a save as on your file and will attach it here. Can you check it out and see if you are still having the issues?

You may want to follow the steps here if you continue to have issues with the file.
