Make a single piece of content scrollable?

Hello, 

 I am designing screen layouts within a CRM and i have a Summary Screen that is displaying a lot of text content. I have divided these content sections into individual 'boxes' to make it easier to use from a UX point of view. these boxes are a fixed height on screen.

One of these content boxes contains a List, and the list is longer than the Box Height, so i want to show that individual Content Box with a vertical scroll bar, allowing the User to scroll up and down inside just that content box, andnot the whole screen. is this possible?

Hi Phillip,

Thank you for getting in touch with us here at Community! At the moment, Studio prototypes can only be scrolled at the artboard level, and at the moment it's not possible to define a specific scroll area within an artboard.

This a feature request we're currently monitoring user interest for. I will go ahead and add your +1 towards seeing it implemented — please keep an eye out for an email from our team shortly!

If you have additional questions or suggestions, please let us know.

Laura

Hi Phillip,

There is also a work around that you can do.

Since the information you want to display is in a fixed size rectangle (box),

  1. Create a rectangle of the size corresponding to the height of the box/ the information that can be displayed at once and use it as mask (highlight the created rectangle and the box with the information, right click and select mask) for the box containing the information.
  2. Replicate the masked group (the rectangle used as mask and the box containing the information) in a new screen and show the remaining information not displayed in the first screen (can be achieved by just dragging only the information in the box that originally houses the information till only the information you want to be displayed is visible. The mask allows whatever information you don't need on a screen or element to be invisible).
  3. Create a transition using the 'drag down/up' from the masked group from 1 to the new screen.

I hope this works.

Regards,
Wurah.

Hi Laura, Wurah,

Likewise, would it be possible to swipe left/right independently on a series of images displayed on a single line of the page, without swiping the page left/right?

If not, please count my question as +1 for such feature request.

Thank you

Fred

Hi Fred,

Thanks for reaching out to get your vote added to develop the ability to swipe left/right independently without swiping the page left/right. 

I'm really happy to report that you can indeed get a series of images to move left to right without swiping. To accomplish this, I would recommend checking out the information we have here that details how to create Timer interactions.

Please note: In order to use this transition, you must add the transition to the artboard, not the individual element/image. 

Additionally, this cannot be triggered by a scroll at this time. If you want to be able to trigger this interaction by scrolling, let us know and we will get your vote added to this request.

As always, if you have any questions about this, please let us know and we will chime back in to help!

Have a great day,
Mike

Dear Mike,

Thanks so much for the quick reply here.

I indeed prefer a manual left/right swipe capability for moving images left to right and right to left, rather than a timer.

However I get confused because two of your Examples & Tutorials featured in the Studio software illustrate almost what I wanted to accomplish: the Carousel and the Parallax Swiping show independent images that can be swiped left/right. But I was unable to reproduce the effect with a dozen images using three artboards or more.

It feels I am just missing something rather than there is a limitation to your software.

Cheers.

Fred

Hi Fred,

In this case, we'd be happy to have our Support team take a look at what may be going on with this. So I'll be opening a ticket on your behalf so they can troubleshoot with you internally. Please keep an eye out for an email from one of our Support agents soon.

Hi Ella,

I figured it out, no worries. I swipe left/right a coupe of small pics from one artboard to the others.

Still, it would be nice to have them swiped independently from the other components on the artboard, to limit the creation of countless artboards dedicated to the swipe function.

Thanks for your support. Great community and great software. I'm spreading the words. You are to prototyping what Sketchup is to 3D designing, so thumbs up, keep it up.

Best

Fred

Hi Fred,

So glad to hear that you're all set there!

As for your feature request, I'll take the ticket created earlier and change it to track your feature request for the ability to create interactions between elements within a single artboard.

Please keep an eye out for an additional email indicating that we’ve formally tracked your feedback.

Best,
Ella

Hi Fred

 

I came across this tutorial on YouTube and think it might help you achieve what you're looking to do. Hope this helps!

Thanks Owen!

Indeed, that's exactly how I did it with my series of 9 pics.

Much appreciated.
