Free Form Drag and Drop not working correctly on a few objects

Oct 27, 2014

I am using Storyline 1.7.  I have a slide where I want special ed teachers to be able to set up a classroom using objects like desk and chairs randomly scattered about.  This all works fine.  However, a few of the objects will try to snap to the right side of the screen when within a certain distance while other objects allow you to place the object near the edge without it snapping.  These same objects work fine around the other edges.  I have tried multiple settings on multiple objects, but nothing has seemed to help.  This slide started as a PowerPoint slide.  I have attached it if anyone would like to take a look.

Thank you!

Wendy and Stephanie, thank you for your suggestions.  The uncheck "Snap dropped items to drop target" didn't change anything.  I was also testing the drag and drop "Drop Target" with different items because since this was a sandbox activity, it thought it did not matter which target, if any, was in there.

So, I got it working by adding an invisible rectangle that covers the entire slide and using that as the Drop Target. The weird snapping on the right hand side for a few objects has disappeared, and it is now working as I hoped.

Thanks again.
