Extra object appearing in Down State

Jan 22, 2023

Hi Everyone,

I have a drag and drop activity where the learner is sorting vehicles into four categories. I have the vehicles appear one at a time. When the learner clicks the vehicle, it shrinks to a drag-able size using the Down state. That is all fine.

I needed to add a bit of text description for each vehicle, so I added that to the vehicle's "normal" state. When I edit the vehicle's "down" state, that text is no longer there. That is fine. That is what I want to happen: Click the vehicle, shrink it, the text disappears. However, when I preview the slide, the text is not gone in the "down" state. It is still there, full-size, and drags along with the vehicle. What am I doing wrong? Also, the text box does not show up as a separate item in the timeline.

here is an example, how states are working in the storyline player


the stated are NOT exchanged, but displayed on top of each other

you need a background with identical width/height to cover the underlying states
