Option - Reveal drag items one at a time

Jan 13, 2014


I am using the drag and drop template and on every drop event I am displaying a layer with information. This works fine when the "Reveal drag items one at a time" checkbox is unchecked.

But when I use this option the next drag item does not appear after the previous layer is closed. 

Am i missing something? Is there a workaround?

Hi Rohit,

I set up a simple example, and the individual drag items appear one after the other even with the use of a layer. Can you take a look at my .story file and see if it works for you as well? 

If your files are behaving differently, I wanted to offer a reminder to: 

  • Work on your local drive (your C: drive).Working on a network drive or a USB drive can cause erratic behavior, includingfile corruption, loss of audio, and other unexpected behavior. 
  • You should also make sure the directory pathto your project files and your published output is less than 260 characters(for example C:\Articulate).
  • Avoid using special characters, accents orsymbols in your file names.

Hi Angela, 

Thank you for sharing your file! 

I reviewed your file, and I do see how the drag & drop items are not completing their animations. I found an active report around Drag & Drag-drop items with animations set to reveal one item at a time, not working as intended. I will be including your comments on our report so we can be sure to provide an update when we have more details to share! 

In the meantime, I applied a workaround to your file that allowed the other items to appear. Here are the changes I made:

  • I kept the animation for the first drag item and removed the animation from the rest of the items.
  • After doing that, the drag & drop interaction revealed each item!  

Please let us know if you have any questions!
