How can i create an animated overlay to present a dynamic navigation?

Hello, i want to display a number of tabs one for each day of the week that will be positioned above a Schedule/Calendar type grid, and when you hover over a tab it grows taller to indicate that it is clickable.

How can i create this animation without having to create multiple copies of the same Artboard? can i just create the animated navigation tabs and then add it to any artboards where i want this animated navigation?

I was thinking it could be done as an overlay?

Hi Phillip,

Thanks for reaching out about this here in Community! Unfortunately, there is not a simple way to create animation that you have described at this time besides setting up multiple artboards as you noted.

However, we are currently tracking a feature request to allow for multiple states in Studio components which would cover the functionality you're looking for. In the meantime, I will open a ticket on your behalf to track your interest for this feature. 

Please keep an eye out for an email confirming that we've formally tracked your feedback. If there's anything else I can help out with, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Have a great day!

Shaina

ok thank you Shaina,

the ideal solution would to be able to Create an Animated Component, i could then add the buttons and create the motion effect to simulate the dropdown list. Save this Animated Component and then add it into a layout template. i would only have to create the animated navigation once without the need to create an artboard for each rollover state.

Is it also possible to suggest an Auto-Save enhancement so that Studio will auto-save work in the background. i recently lost 6 hours worth of work because Studio crashed and i didnt know it did not have an auto-save feature

Thanks for that additional feedback, Phillip. I will be sure to add those comment to your ticket for this feature request.

It looks like we're also tracking interest for autosave in Studio. I'm so sorry to hear that you lost hours of work! That is extremely frustrating, and we certainly understand the need for this.

I will open a separate ticket on your behalf to track your interest for this feature as well. Please keep an eye out for another email for this.

Please don't hesitate to reach out if there's anything else I can help out with.

Best,

Shaina
