An index has a primary state, with a hover state and a slide out clicked state which shows an image container like the Roma reference above.
I’ve added images below to further illustrate the need
Where the nested instance of a variant needs to be updatable.
The problem is that only the base or ‘primary’ part of the variant can update. Not the nested instance. As you can see from this image below.
If I update the nested instance (the image part) of the variant (yellow) it always reverts back to grey (the parent variant). This doesn’t help when i’m trying to show the client an index with unique projects in the (clicked state) image container.
So for anyone else figuring this out. With the info above, the only solution is to duplicate the whole variant for each ‘project’ (row in the accordion index).
There’s no way to keep a nested instance such as a clicked state unique without reverting to the primary state.
To be fair having multiple Variant sets for each ‘project row’ isn’t too much of a pain. Less tidy. But it works.
You’re amazing. thank you this makes sense now that I see it. I tested myself to make sure I understood and it’s clear as day now. Hide the Layers not the Fill as you said!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
