Auto layout x Smart Animate

Hi everyone,

I’m having an issue with compatibility between Auto Layout and Smart Animate.

I have two components, accordion lists, with several variants that collapse and expand through Smart Animate. Whenever I apply Auto Layout to the frame with the components, they lose the Smart Animate effect, the page twitches and then the accordion list expands with Instant effect.

Thanks in advance!

I’ve been having this issue as well, and I can’t seem to find any other threads talking about this issue (though it is a niche one). Bumping this thread in hopes of a solution!

I’m also having this issue. Will update if I find out more.

Hi there,
This issue occurs if you set your main frame to auto layout. Remove the autolayout and you won’t have the problem anymore.
But it would be better if Figma fixes this issue because autolayout on the whole page is still very convenient :wink:

This is still happening. My frame has to be autolayout so removing it is not an option. Right now I can only change the animamtion to “instant” and check the “Preserve scroll position”. Hope this will be fix!!

I’m having issue about this as well. Hope Figma fixes this bug. :pensive:
