    @ #18 - I recall using Vizzle when it first came out and in matching lessons you didn’t have to drag to match; you would just touch the correct answer.  In creating lessons I see that “draggable” check box, but cannot uncheck it.  For my kids asking them to make then confirm the selection is too much comprehension or too complex a task.  How can I get back to the olden days of a one-touch-n-done match?
