Keep draggable item on top

Mar 12, 2020


I'm currently creating an interaction in which users must solve a puzzle by dragging and rotating objects. I have not defined drop targets, so users can freely drag the items anywhere on the canvas.

Here are the three items:

After dragging and rotating the objects, the result should look something like this:

However, this result can only be achieved if the object in the middle (the two riders) always appears on top. Even though I placed this item on top in the timeline, in the interaction the last dragged item always appears on top. How can I make sure that one object always appears on top regardless of which item was dropped last?

Hi Stefaan,

If you are only intending to move the horses and will leave the jockeys where they are, you can place the jockeys on a separate layer that shows when the timeline starts for the slide. This will still give you the option to manipulate the horses however you wish to, but will always ensure that the jockeys appear on top when you drop the horses over them, as the horses will remain on the base layer underneath.
