Tile Feature of Drag and Drop...

Mar 05, 2016

When I attempt to use the 'Tile' feature for drag and drop, the items do not all go to the hotspot.  For some reason they seem to have to line up straight across or straight down. How do I make them all stay exactly in the hotspot when I drag them? Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi Michelle,

Here is a description of how they'll each work:

Tile - will drop on top of your target so that just the corner edge is showing, kind of like fanning out a deck of cards.

Stack Random - will have the object appear on the target, but in no particular location.

Stack offset - will have the object appear on top of the target, offset just to the right a bit

Free - will place the object on top of the target wherever the user lets it go

Snap to center - place the center of the object over the center of the target

Hope that helps clarify!

Hi Walt,

Hm, stack offset still seems to work the way I described almost with a combination of tile in the sense that they're offset but like a deck of cards - whereas tile is laying the items one next to the other on top of the target. My apologies - and I'll leave it as is with this updated explanation - and you're welcome to leave your post here as well.
