Draggable works everywhere except IE11 (edge mode), in which it only works on the second click...


Has anyone else experienced this?


I thought it might be my code but the same problem occurs on the demo here:

We're looking into this. Thanks for pointing it out. Stand by...

I believe we've identified the issue (it's related to an odd way that Microsoft decided to handle their own legacy MSPointerEvent stuff) and resolved it. Please try the preview of 1.11.2 and let us know if it works well for you - snag it from another post in the forums: http://forums.greensock.com/topic/8556-tweenlitefrom-cuts-off-some-width-where-does-the-value-come-from/?p=33641

Still have this problem with IE11 and sometimes with Chrome 40.0.2214.38 beta-m

(Dragging child node of SVG)

In IE first click allways calls a drag event, second click calls click event.

When i'm dragging then dropping then clicking - everything works normal.

After drop click works 1 time.

Hi cxlvii,


Sorry to hear you are encountering problems. 

It would really help if you could create a really simple demo as explained here: http://greensock.com/forums/topic/9002-read-this-first-how-to-create-a-codepen-demo/


This way we know we are seeing exactly what you are seeing.

In the meantime, a quick fix may be wrapping your svg elements in a div and dragging the div. IE's support for svg has been pretty horrible.

If there is something we can change in Draggable to account for this we will definitely give it a shot.
