I'm working on a simple, visual matching game for kids, where they must must drag and drop a word (as SpriteText) over a 9-patch box correctly.
The SpriteText obviously uses the DragDrop behavior, and it either tweens to its original position when dropped in the wrong area. However, on collision with the correct 9-patch, I want the text to lock on to the coordinates of that box.
I have been able to achieve everything I've described above, except the Collision behavior doesn't seem to be available for SpriteText. To make it work, I've had to pin the SpriteText to an invisible Sprite.
But, far as I can see, the SpriteText object type already has a collision box coded in by the program, and if I run Debugging, the object does actually have a collisions parameter which is set to "True."
So am I doing this wrong, or is this literally a feature that Construct 3 has mostly implemented in the back end, but is simply turned off for some reason? It's a major time suck to edit the smaller, pinned sprite (smaller to ensure the bounding box works right) directly under a larger object on the same layer.
Many thanks for any assistance the forum can provide.
