Drag and drop in a software simulation

I've recorded a software simulation that includes dragging and dropping a widget onto the screen, then repositioning and resizing that widget. Storyline records the drag and drop, reposition and resizing actions, but when I run the simulation, I'm only able to click where the drag and drop begins, but can't actually drag anything onto the screen. The simulation runs that part as a recording once I click where this action begins in the software. Is there a way around this so learners can actually complete the drag and drop action in the simulation?

Hello Lisa!

We're happy to help! It sounds like the screen recording captured the drag and drop simulation, but the learner can only interact with the beginning of drag and drop simulation. Have you tried adding a slide with an additional hotspot in the area where the items should be dropped?

Hello Lisa!

I see that you've uploaded your file to our Support Engineers and have been working with my teammate, Fannie May. It looks like Fannie May was able to take a look at your project and assist with adding a drag and drop question in the software simulation.

If you run into a similar snag, don't hesitate to connect with a Support Engineer.
