Description

When answering a question, the goal message of the exercice disappears. You can get it back taping on the screen but this is not obvious. We should keep the message on the top of the screen and move the answer area a bit down.

I would like to take this up.

Actually this is not a good plan in my opinion, as in some levels we need to place several boys and girls, and it will not fit anymore in the area.
I propose a better plan: keep current behavior (hide the instructions when dragging items), but also add an explicit button to display again the instructions on top of placed items in the area. (for this button, you can use any temporary icon, I'll make a good one when the patch is accepted).

@timotheegiet Actually @echarruau suggested something similar for the activity, in the current diff long instructions when clicked do not make the widgets invisible but in turn the opacity of the instruction is reduced and so the items are visible at the back. You can have a look at the current diff and let me know the changes required. That way we won't even require a button.

Yes I did read that comment, but still it's a bad design idea to mix half transparent text with the area to interact with, it doesn't look really good. Also we can easily have space in the bar with items to drag for that new button.

From the top of my head, Akshay used elipse cut the text, we should not
need to use transparency

This is how it looks after applying his patch

Really I'd prefer to have the text disappear when starting dragging items, and have a button to display the text again if user forgot the instructions. The text should then be displayed over the drop area, not on top of it, and disappear again when dragging another item or clicking on the area.

@timotheegiet sure I get your idea, I'll implement that, thanks for the descriptive feedback :)
