SL360 Drop Zones Resetting

I've been working on the same module for about 4-5 months or so. It's fairly complex, and going through rounds of reviews. For some reason, SL has been resetting my drop zones after each of the last two release/updates. Any way to prevent this? Ex. It changes the correct drop zone from Rectangle 4 to Rectangle 3 on all similar slides. (It's a board game style interaction where people spin  a wheel and move their game piece before each section, so I have very similar slides for each such interaction throughout the module. And all of them were reset after the last two updates.)

Hi Traci,

When you say reset, was it ever initially rectangle 3 instead of 4? Or that it's randomly changing the drop zone to something else that wasn't ever an option?  I haven't experienced this with the updates of Storyline 360, but I'd love to take a look at your file. 

Can you share a copy here with us, or send it along to our Support team here?

Hi Ashley, Rectangle 4 is a transparent rectangle that is the correct drop zone. Rectangle 3 is a shape with animation that changes to a visible state to be a hint if someone drops their game piece in an incorrect area. 3 and 4 overlap each other in position, so my best guess is that's why these two change. It doesn't seem be random bc it's the same shapes get swapped with new releases. I can share an example slide with the support team later today. I just wish I could prevent it as it's inconvenient to go in and fix 13 or so slides repeatedly.
