Drag-Drop: Hide one state with selection of a new state in SL2

I want to drag an object.  I first hover to read the content.  The learner will then drag the object to the correct location.  When "selected" and dragging, the object is "glowing" (new state) --- however, I want that "hover" content state  to go away when the learner drags.

Appreciate advice on how to get rid of the hover state with the object is dragging. 


Thank you!

Hi Terra,

I can see that being an interference. There might be a way to have the hover state go away if you use custom states, and possibly have them click the item before dragging. I will have to play with a file to test.

I am sure if others in the community know of a way to do this they will add some ideas as well.

Thanks for the additional thoughts, Emily.  I decided to just place a button under each object and place the content on a layer - this way the learner can easily open and close the layer without any text interfering with the drop target.  I think it tends to clutter up my slide a bit, but I could not think of any other work around.
