How to view 2nd layer of a slide in a separate moveable indow.

On one of my quizz slides there is a button the user must click to see the second layer.  The 2nd layer has an image that must be viewed to answer the question.   How do I configure the 2nd layer so that the user can move it in any direction and be able to view the question and image simultaneously in separate windows?

Hi J,

I'm having a little difficulty visualizing what you'd like to do. Are you wanting the learner to drag the image around on the layer? I'm not sure how this would work. Maybe you could just add a zoom to the image, instead? When the user wants to view it, they can click on it (actually you could do this on the main layer, too), and when they don't need it they can close it/minimize it. A lightbox might work for this as well.

Can you give us a little more information, or post your project's .STORY file here so the community can see what you have so far? Maybe we can give some suggestions for working with this.

Additionally, if J is hoping that the slide layer may act like a lightbox of sorts, it isn't designed to work that way.  If you want content to launch in a separate, movable window I would suggest using a web object, details here - http://community.articulate.com/tutorials/products/adding-web-objects.aspx
