Freeform Drag and Drop in Storyline2

What is a freeform drag and drop interaction?

In Storyline, you can build a freeform drag and drop interaction or quiz question in minutes. ‘Freeform’ simply means that any objects on your screen can become a draggable item or a drop target (with a few exceptions, for example video files).

So, if you have a great looking slide and you want to ‘convert’ it into a drag and drop interaction, you can! Simply click the ‘Convert to freeform’ button under the ‘Insert’ tab, and you’re away! If you have a PowerPoint slide you would like to convert, simply import it into your Storyline project and follow the same procedure.

Video tutorial

If you need to see it to believe it, I created a video showing the basics of creating a freeform drag and drop interaction in Storyline and also some customisation tips to make your interaction look and work exactly how you intended.
