Fixed Sidebar Subnav Menu

Hey Community, I'm curious how I can simulate a fixed sidebar subnav menu on interior pages. If anyone knows, please share!

Thanks for reaching out here in Community, Derek! So that I understand correctly, can you please provide an example of the behavior you're attempting to achieive?

Additionally, can you confirm if you're trying to do this in a regular Prototype/Project rather than a Studio prototype? Fee free to provide any other relevant information to the functionality you're looking for in your response.

Look forward to hearing back soon,

Hi, I have the same question. To answer Shaina's question, in my case it is a regular prototype built in Sketch and uploaded using the Craft manager plug in. As an example, see screenshots from a website below. The sidebar (red outline) is fixed even though the content on the right side was scrolled. How can I achieve that with InVision? Thank you for your support.

Hi Dorothea,

Thanks for providing those details requested above, as well as adding in some screenshots. Currently, when you prototype in the InVision web app (or via Craft in Sketch) you are only able to have fixed headers and footers, and fixed side navigation is not possible.

This is a potential feature that our Product team is tracking, though. That being said, I will open a ticket on your behalf to track your interest for this potential feature. Please keep an eye out for an email confirming that we've formally tracked your interest.

In the meantime, I suggest trying out Studio! Prototypes created in our Studio app can have fixed objects through the use of pinning.

Sorry we couldn't give you a more immediate solution.
