Is there a way to escape the colon that is used for denoting the tip text? I want to include a colon in the word to be dragged.

Great activity. I do have one issue though:
By default, the words appear on the right hand side of the screen. When I change my browser width, the words will eventually appear under the text, which I think looks better and also makes it easier to drag and drop the words into the text. Is there a way of forcing the words to appear under the text? I realise that there isn't in the settings when you create the activity, but is there a workaround, i.e. a way of forcing the activity to appear in a reduced width so that the words appear under the text - perhaps the iFrame embed code is the way to do this, but what would the width need to be set at? Or possibly by creating columns in the web page (I'm using WordPress).
Certainly being able to choose where the words appeared in the activity would be a useful feature.

That's a great idea. Perhaps you could make a suggestion in the feature request forum and it will be considered there :)

I totally agree. It's difficult to see the words to drag (right below) if the text is a big long. It's not convenient for the student. It would be much beter to be able to choose the place to display the words.

I have made several Drag Text exercises and I have noticed that once I click the CREATE button I can NOT edit a mistake.
I sometimes find a typo or I want to change a word or two. I click EDIT and make the correction. But when I click UPDATE and look at the exercise, the corrections are not there. Opening the exercIse again, I always find my corrections are GONE. I can continue making corrections any number of times and the corrections will never be implemented. I have found that the only way to make corrections is to delete the exercise and start all over again.
This has happened every time I try to make a correction.

I have asked my supervisor for the information you request.
I believe they are working in Wordpress, but I am not sure.
I am working in the H5P editing page on an iPad Pro, iOS 11
I use Safari.
I am not sure about #4 or #5, I will find out.
I believe it has never worked. I was lucky in the beginning as I found no errors. When I found a few typos or I had added the ‘*’ sign incorrectly and I made changes and pressed the update button, the exercise seemed to update, but when I check it, it is not updated. When I open it again, the text I added is gone and it’s back to its incorrect self.

Thank you for the addtional information. A ticket has been created and you can follow it here.
I suggest for the meantime use a Mac/PC until the issue fixed.

Thank you, appreciate it.

As someone wrote earlier in this thread, having the words in the lower right is not ideal placement. I would love the ability to select where on the screen to place the words.
Fri, 11/03/2017 - 09:52
That is the aim of the bug report, to have an option where to place the draggables.
Thu, 11/30/2017 - 03:03
For example to have just one fill-in sentence with one correct answer defined
*dog* is a type of canine.
but with several incorrect draggables, such as "cat" "fish"

This is not possible as of the moment with this content type. But I think you are on to something, I suggest that you head over to the Feature Request forum and post your suggestion there.

First off, thanks for developing these very useful modules and the plugin for Wordpress.
I am a real beginner when it comes to building webpages, so I apologize in advance if I'm not able to clearly describe my problem.
I am using Wordpress along with the H5P plugin. I created a new "drag the words" exercise using the H5P plugin. I then created a new page on my website and used the "add HP5" button to insert the "drag the words" activity that I just created into the page. So far, so good.
However, when I view the page on my laptop I cannot see the entire activity and the words to drag on the screen. When I take a word from the bottom and drag it towards the top of the page, in order to put it into the first answer field in the activity, the dragged word just stops at the top of the screen, so it is impossible for me to put the word into the correct answer field. I have the same problem, only worse do to less "real estate" on my mobile phone (Samsung Android).
I am wondering how to solve this issue. Is there any way to make the page scroll up when the dragged word reaches the upper limits of the page? Thanks in advance for any help
1) This is the most I can see on a one page view at 100%
2) This is what I don't see on a one page view at 100%

THank you for the well written report. I have filed a bug report regarding this and you can follow the progress here.
Mon, 04/30/2018 - 11:07
Thank you for filing the bug report. I imagine I'm not the only one experiencing this problem. The "drag the word" module is really great. I'd love for my students to be able to use it comfortably on their mobile phones.
All the best,

I believe this has been requested before, but it would be great if it were possible to have extra words in the list of words to be dragged. Wrong words. Then the student would have to choose only the ”right” words to drag to their positions. This would be wonderful for a language course where there are subtle differences in a noun or verb’s usage that needs to be tested or practiced.
For example: Hindi has male and female nouns that change the adjective‘s ending when used in a sentence. Also, when you address a sentence/question to a man or a woman, you have to use the proper verb ending, male ending to a man, female ending to a woman.... things like that.... that need to be practiced.

This is a great idea. Please head over to the Feature Request forum and post your suggestion there. In order for your feature request to attract as much interest as possible make sure it follows the below guidelines:
It is clear from every perspective how the feature will work. We recommend describing the feature with one or more user stories, for instance “As an author I want it to be possible to pick between different effects for the check answer animation so that the learners will see a variety of effects and also I can adapt the effects to my target audience(I’ll be using pink unicorns which works really well for both my target audience which are 4 year old girls and venture capitalists)”
If the feature can be illustrated with images or videos it always helps
Make it clear what content types this is relevant for, and or if this is a new content type.
Thu, 06/21/2018 - 07:37
What if you want just one drag & drop target, and three possible choices to drag in (one of them being the correct choice)? How do you build that?
Fri, 06/22/2018 - 04:43
Drag and Drop should be able to handle this. You just need to set the draggables to be dropped in the drop zone but just one answer correct.
The request of Pammellam once created should also take care of this.
Fri, 10/26/2018 - 08:37
Hello! First, thank you for this amazing tool that is so user-friendly.
I am facing an issue though. I have a long text and all the draggable boxes are in the top-right corner. Since the text is quite long, I can't drag the options and scroll down at the same time. Would there be a solution, please?
Mon, 10/29/2018 - 00:01
Thank you for the kind words.
I have created a bug report regarding this and you can follow the progress here.

Hi I tried using this Drag Words feature in my programming class to sequence JAVA codes, however I had problems in setting up the words/codes that contain asteriks. Is there a solution for this? Thanks!
Wed, 12/05/2018 - 09:40
This is not possible as of the moment. Since the asterisk is used to indicate the answer there isn't a code in this content that lets us "escape" the asterisk. I would suggest though that you post a request in the Feature Request forum. In order for your feature request to attract as much interest as possible make sure it follows the below guidelines:

Is there any possibility , can we drag whole sentence as an answer it seems only allowed words?
Tue, 01/29/2019 - 18:55
Is that possible to drag and drop whole sentence as an answer?
Wed, 01/30/2019 - 07:44
I'm afraid this is not possible since Drag the Words is designed to drag single words.

As I have mentioned before, I am helping with writing exercises for a Hindi course using H5P. And I also study the course materials. So I see the material from two sides, as a writer/developer and as a student user, a beginning student of the lowest level.
This is what I have noticed for the DRAG THE WORDS exercise: you can sneak in a couple of extra words and we have been doing that. For example, the answer in Hindi letters and the answer in Roman letters in the same line. (Not all of the students want to use the Hindi letters so both have to be provided for those few students who want to do everything in Roman letters, the English alphabet.) This is fine while you’re doing the exercise. You can see all of the words and drag them to their appropriate spot.
But as a student of this material I have noticed one bad point. Once you drag the word/words to their spot, the little box ( I don’t know the computer term for the name of the little box) they are in gets truncated so all the words don’t show. There is just a certain set length, it seems. So part of the answer gets covered. And as I have mentioned before, as a beginning student, after doing the exercise I want to review the material and look at all my answers again, possibly reading the Roman and Hindi letters again. But if the number words is a little bit too long, the little box they are in gets cut off and I can’t see ALL the words making for a less than perfect review/study method. The only way I can see all of the words in a certain item is to pull it out and start from the beginning again. When I am unsure of the answer, I have to keep doing that again and again. Which is not a perfect study method if you ask me.
One thing that I think needs to be reviewed in general for all the exercises is the USER EXPERIENCE. The STUDENT EXPERIENCE from the point of vie of the student. There are indeed technical limitations that we would all have to live with. I believe more input about user experience with regard to exercises and the learning parameters in general needs to be constantly reviewed on all levels from the lowest beginner type level to the more advanced type level. As all students of different levels need to be satisfied with the material they see on the screen so that they are motivated to keep studying. Developers and programmers working on a certain type of exercise may create that exercise from their point of view, perhaps a high-level point of view whereas it really needs a lower level approach. I guess what I am saying is that developers and programmers are really smart people and perhaps cannot imagine what a low-level learner might need as far as an answer format… And I realize that improvement will come as more and more people use the material and give feedback!
I wanted to upload an example jpg of what I am talking about, but I can not seem to do that.....

As always a very well explained observation and suggestion. I suggest that you post this as an official feature request in the Feature Request forum.
