Last item disappearing in Drag and Drop Freeform questions.

Feb 20, 2018

The last item dropped in a drag and drop activity is disppearing when you click going to the next slide.

Is there any fix for this?

Hello Philip,

Thanks for the details and the example of what you are experiencing. 

We have another issue that Alyssa shared here, that is related to the first drag item.

This conversation is attached so that we can provide an update when we have one to share.

The workaround we have listed is the same one you noted, which is to set the Shuffle to 'None'.

I face the same issues regarding the 1st drag item disappearing in Quizmaker 360 with Shuffle on.

I want to know when this issue will finally be fixed? I want to check if my learner knows the answer by analyzing it, not by knowing by heart '1st goes there, 2nd goes there...'...

And I don't want to remove my client customized background as well...

Best regards,

Mateusz Szuter

Ok, sorry Alyssa it has to be you, but it's another time I see this... reply. Please keep in mind that it's not personal, it's about overall company behaviour past 6 years I use Storyline.

"I don't have a timeframe for a fix at this point, but we promise to keep you posted. "

Seriously, you don't have a timeframe for bug that exist for at least year? Does anybody even consider repairing TECHNICAL BUGS? Or can we, people who paid for the software, just blabber for ourselves, to let other people know 'hey there, yeah, it's not only you, don't worry, it might be repaired in next 3 years maybe', seriously, what's wrong with developer team to not prioritize such things? How many people should write, that the problem exists and it's a serious thing for them? It's not a feature request, it's a bug report! Which sometimes seriously affects the learning itself, not to mention it aesthetic.
You should hear my last conversation with a client... Yes sir, I know it's disappearing, however I cannot do anything for you, as the bug exist since the last year and company which made the e-learning developing software doesn't bother and I'm beyond repairing it myself.

That's not the way you should treat people who buy something from you. Really. Maybe try to raise that concern with your manager and do a little changes in customer support?
