Have done a lot of searching but was trying to figure out if by using interactive components I can now finally achieve the execution of creating a hover state that also allows the user to click to a new frame. I see this is not possible with traditional prototyping in figma.
Reading through the documentation it seems that by creating a varient of a component, I can create a second interaction on the 2nd variant to achieve this. I’ve tried a few ways and can’t get it to work. Only the initial hover state works.
- Create interaction of a layer within a frame
- Interaction selection for this layer is to hover
- When hovering, it opens a component as an overlay
- This component has 2 variants, where the first variant allows a swap to the second variant
- The second variant links to a new frame in the prototype
note: The component in question was using auto layout, and I tried to removing autolayout. This did not fix the issue.
Has anyone gotten this to work? Or is it still not even possible? If not possible, I don’t understand why this capability is missing. This is an extremely common use case in most digital products where the user will see a tooltip to indicate where they can click and its just not possible to do without creating very bulky prototypes
