If you're not able to drag-and-drop when using Chrome on a SMART Board (or other interactive whiteboard) or touchscreen laptop, then you may need to enable Chrome's Touch Events API. Here's how:
- In Chrome, enter chrome://flags in the address bar.
- Scroll down to the Touch Events API setting.
- Select Enabled in the drop-down menu.
- Restart Chrome.
UPDATE - January 2020
In previous versions of Chrome, "Touch Events API" could easily be turned on to allow for drag-and-drop in Vizzle. Since Chrome 78, this option is no longer available, though there are a couple of workarounds (see below). As an alternative to drag-and-drop, we recommend using the Click to Submit method in Matching. Click here to learn how to turn on Click to Submit.
- In Chrome, press F12 (or Control+Shift+I) to open the developer tools
- Click the More Options button (looks like 3 vertical dots)
- Select More Tools > Sensors
- In the Sensors section on the bottom, scroll down to the Touch menu
- Select Force Enabled
- Refresh the tab and go to Vizzle NextGen
Please note, this workaround has to be turned on each time Vizzle NextGen is accessed.
For Windows 10, here's a workaround that only needs to be set up once:
- Create a Chrome shortcut on the desktop (or anywhere else)
- Right-click your browser icon shortcut
- Click Properties
- Set the Target to: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --touch-events
