SL2 Drag & Drop Bug with Free Drop?

Oct 27, 2014

I was working with a Drag & Drop and had set the Drop Target to free by right-clicking on the drop target and choosing "Free" from the shortcut menu. But I wasn't able to drop my items freely; instead, they were snapping on top of each other.

I poked around and ultimately clicked on Drag & Drop Options. I discovered that the drop-down under "Drop Target Options" was listed as Stack Random." So, the right-click setting didn't "take" (screenshot).

If this is a bug, I'd be happy to report it, but wanted to check with others here first to see if y'all are experiencing the same thing. I've exited Storyline, re-booted, and tried this in 3 new projects, all with the same results.

Of course, if I adjust the setting in the D&D Options box, I'm good to go. But it seems to me the right-click option should work, as it did in SL1.

Yep, bug. It works the other way around. If you change it in the drag and drop options it will show the correct placement when right-clicking on the drop target, and it will behave correctly on preview/publish. But, as you've noted, if you change this setting by right-clicking, it doesn't change anything at all.
