Hi Victor, 

I don't think it would be entirely like Mapquest, but what about setting an image and adding a trigger to show a layer or another slide with a zoomed in version of that image. Then you'll want to make that image a drag item (using the triggers) so that the user could drag it around the screen. It may take some finessing to get it to look at you want - but that's the only thought I have outside of the standard Storyline zoom and scrolling panel functionality.

Hi Victor,

Do you have this slide set up already? I could help you on yours - but I just had the attached open with a random image - you'll see I added a trigger too it which just makes it so I can drag it - I connected it with a state change, but that could happen off stage too so it doesn't really do much.

Getting so close I can smell victory! 

  1. I created a drag and drop question with on correct answer (ungraded)
  2. I used two targets at the top corners of the screen (no fill, no border to make them invisible)
  3. I used a very large version of the figure that was greater than the screen size and used the "drag" method previously suggested.
  4. I then selected "free" in the drag and drop option - that did the trick of locking the figure in position when released.

Well, that version of the ZOOM does 90% of what I wanted.  The final option is to add hot spots to the drawing that link to other slides or scenes.  However, when I place a hot spot on the zoomed in drawing, the hot spots do not move with the drawing when it is dragged to a different position.  I tried to "group" the hot spot with the drawing but that did not work.  Any suggestions to get the links to move with the drawing?
