Need Help with Drag & Drop Images, Please!

Hi There,

I created this game for our new hires, and everything works perfectly... except the drag & drop items are being dropped in FRONT of the buckets, instead of BEHIND them, which is what I wanted, to make it look like each item was IN the bucket... now, I know items in the Timeline are supposed to be stacked bottom-to-top, so that images can be behind or in front of others... well, I've done this, but during the interaction, it still looks wrong. Can you take a look at my file and let me know if I can fix this? Thanks!!

I'm not sure if this is the answer you're looking for, but I believe I discovered a workaround in Storyline. I created a new layer with just the trash cans that displays when the timeline on the first layer begins. I altered the layer so that you could still click on the baseline layer, and changed the targets to a series of nearly-transparent boxes (white, 98% transparency). I have tested it a couple of times. Looks like it should work. I'll attach my Storyline file. Let me know if you need anything else.

Good luck!

Thank you so much, Patrick! I had to add the extra baskets and transparent boxes on all 3 layers so that when the user clicks "Try Again" or "Continue," the files didn't all pop to the front of the base layer baskets again, but your original plan worked beautifully. I appreciate your help!
