Component not visible in prototype

Hi everyone, I have an issue with instances of a component (a line) that is not visible in prototype view, but shows up fine in the work file. I’ve tried the following to troubleshoot but no success:

  • copying content in affected frames, and pasting them onto new frames
  • detaching the instance
  • creating a new component
  • making sure the component instances are within the artboard
  • clearing the browser

I’d appreciate your input in solving this issue, thank you.

Okay, I think I’ve solved the issue. I had the component (a divider line) be set to 0.5px in weight, but once I set it to 1px, it shows up consistently. Looks like Figma has some trouble consistently displaying elements that are less than 1px in size.

Same issue happening for me and I also have .5px lines - some appear while others don’t, super annoying, hope they fix this.

Edit - Found a different solution for this issue -I making sure the object position on Y axis is pixel perfect number. When I had object on Y axis at 300.74px the line disappeared, when I corrected to 300px (removing .74) it appeared. Hope this helps someone!

the issue happens when our group is at the location beyond the first fold of the screen, place it the first fold, it will work perfectly.
