Autolayout doesn't grow when content added with interactive components

I’m trying to build pretty complex form prototype. I would like to show more content when user proceed with the form (progressive disclosure). This works in design mode if I manually change property of the variant. New content push older content downwards. But in prototype present mode when selecting that same radio button new content appears to underneath old content.

This feature paired with conditions would be perfect :fire:


@Gleb Thanks for answering! Nice to hear that you’re already working with this.

Yes that’s what I meant. When any component with new content is expanding/collapsing other content below that should move downwards.

Check this prototype.

I would also like to see this feature. This is the interface I’m working on that would benefit from this functionality. (Also, with an accordion like this, it would be great to have conditional formatting where I could define whether only one card could be expanded or multiple cards could be expanded.)



This feature should be optional when creating an interactive components, because some components may be floating on the screen, like a dropdown menu.
