Hello @kovle


I think that's a logic issue you are having - as you are hit-testing on a jQuery object that contains multiple elements, similar to an array/nodelist, it will probably only ever target/work on the first element in that list, so you will probably have to modify things to be targetting specific elements instead.


Since you appear to want to have the hit-testing on each of your elements in the drop area, you could e.g. do that with an each-loop. I'm not sure how heavy this will be on the performance in the long run, as it will be happening for each of those elements on every drag-event, but this seems to work much more like what I understood you want to happen.


  onDrag: function(e){
      const dragged = this
      drop_area.each(function(i,el) {
        if(dragged.hitTest(el, hit_detection)){

Since it looks like you were mixing vanilla JS with jQuery a bit in that example of yours, I just wanted to mention that of course you could also do all that without jQuery involved - but that is up to you of course. Here is that example with the latest GSAP / Draggable in vanilla JS.
