I am having a little problem dragging an anchor, look at the CodePen please.


An additional problem is that the SVG can be dragged clicking not only in the SVG but (specially at the left) when i am clicking far away from the SVG (100 pixesla i guess).


All is in the Codepen. Again, excuse if maybe some of this questions are very basic.


Please advice, any help are welcome :)

I like to put outlines around elements while positioning them, which will let you clearly see the problem.


To drag an anchor, first you need to set 'dragClickables: true' on your draggable. But an anchor is an inline element, so you need to wrap it in something like a div or set it to display block in you CSS.

Great!!  Thanks OSUblake and Diaco


@Diaco, what i don't understand (because i don't know much or anything about SVG) is how do you calculate correctly the height and the witdth and the correct calculation of the childs.
