Movable Text Boxes

Problem: Is there a way to create slides so that text boxes or shape items can be moved around the slide area when being viewed by the individual watching the tutorial?

ActivePresenter version: 8.3.2

OS: Windows 10


Hi Gene,

Do you mean “automatically” the objects move while the slide plays? In that case, you probably want to use Custom Motion Paths. This video should help: .

Or, do you mean objects the user can move themselves? In that case, you can go to the Interactivity properties pane, and in the Drag-n-Drop subcategory you can make the object a Drag Source. Make sure you uncheck the Revert checkbox; otherwise, the object will always jump back to the original position.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your response. I meant the second of your 2 options. I set it up as you suggested and it works great. Thank you again for your time!
