Im creating a component using “after delay” and even though its not grayed out and i can add it normally, when i go to preview mode, it doesnt work!!
Ive been trying it for a few days now with different components but it never works.
Does anyone know ther reason?
i think it actually start working only after i have the preview page on for like 10 min… which is weir coz i have the dealy after 1ms …
I’ve just had this issue and I’ve figured it out (I think)
Firstly, It’s ony happening in browsers on windows for me. MacOS seems fine.
If the delay is set to a time short than it takes for all the images to load in - then transition wont trigger:
3 work arounds that I can see:
Add an intro frame that hides the loading process, maybe with a “start prototype” button?
Increase initial delay to cover that loading time (not ideal if part of a looping chain of transitions)
Compress images to load faster
None of these are ideal - really, figma should pre-load every asset before it shows the prototype!
I faced the same issue and was looking for a solution. It felt like Figma was going buggy.
I had applied an after-delay transition but it didn’t seem to work in the preview mode.
But then when I was trying to change the settings in preview mode I found a restart button at the bottom right corner, and after clicking it, the after-delay started to work out fine.
I hope this helps if someone faces this problem again.
