Lock drag objects layering with slide layers?

Hi, I've recently updated Articulate 360 after months of neglecting the new updates and realised that some interaction that I've built previously no longer works.

One of which is most troubling for me is the Slide Layers.

Previously, I built an interaction that has drag objects on both the Base Layer and  layers above it; This was so that drag objects on the base layer will always appear below drag objects on the layer above it when dragging them around.

But with the new update, drag objects on the layers above Base Layer would go below drag objects on the Base Layer when dragged over.

Is there any way to lock drag objects in their respective positions on the layers to solve this problem?

Hi Crystal,

Here's a published version of what's happening on my side:

I've also attached the .story file below for you to check the internal setup.

Hopes this better help explain my concerns!

Hi Jia,

Thanks for sharing your file with me! I'd like to get a better understanding of the incorrect behavior you're seeing. 

Here's a Peek at how it worked when I tested your file. Is that similar to what you're seeing?

If you could also record a Peek of your own testing, that would be really helpful. Thanks!

Hi Alyssa,

I've recorded a Peek here! But in essence, its similar to whats happening on your end.

I'm also pretty worried about stationary objects (the grey card) jumping to the top of the arrangement when returning to the slide, rendering drag objects below useless.

Besides this issue, I've also encountered a symbol error with the new text-rendering engine and went ahead to create a separate thread here. Do take a look if you're able to!

Hi Jia,

Thanks for the Peek screen recording! I also tested your file in Storyline 3 (which is similar to Storyline 360 Update 13), and I saw the same behavior. I'm going to share your file with our Support Engineers to get some further insight on how we would expect drag objects on layers to behave. 

Keep an eye out for an email from our team!
