Fixed element disappears in Prototype

Any time I set an element to be fixed, it disappears in the prototype mode. It’s not below the fold line, so it doesn’t have any reason to not appear.

Hi Alice!
If you’re talking about the ‘Fixed position on scroll’ setting, this is now located in the Prototype tab, and no longer in the Properties panel.

To cover some basics in how to select “Fixed”:
You can only apply one scroll position to each object.

  1. Select the object, group or component in the canvas.
  2. Open the Prototype panel in the right sidebar.
  3. In the Scroll behavior section, select the Position dropdown.
    Choose : Fixed
  4. Click the present icon to view the prototype in Presentation view and see the results.

If this doesn’t help, feel free to share a copy of your file and a quick screen recording of what you see on your end here. Thank you!

I am having the same issue.
All other scroll behaviour display the item in prototype but “Fixed” hides it.
Interesting to see how to solve this issue.

It did work when the item did not have to be on absolute position, might be linked?

Hi, thanks for replying. No that isn’t the issue. I’m trying to attach a screen recording video, but it says ‘Sorry, new users can not upload attachments.’

Hi there! Hmm it sounds odd. :thinking:
Thanks for letting me know. This is due to the user trust level, please share a link via a shared drive if you can.

Otherwise, feel free to contact our support team with a copy of your file and a quick screen recording so they can investigate further here:

It’s already set at the bottom in the constraints.

But your object is still not at the bottom of the frame. Just move it.

If you set the fixed object’s constraints to Bottom, it will snap itself to the bottom of the frame (not to the bottom of the preview window), so it is not actually disappearing, if you scroll the prototype to the very end, your bar will be there. If you want it to stay where you are placing it, you must not set vertical (top or bottom) constraints.
