Swap overlay seems to disable all other prototype actions

Here is what I am trying to build:

Page has multiple options to select
After you are done selecting, you click “next” button to navigate to the next page

But currently it seems like I can only click once in my prototype. Here is my prototype:

Some other context:
I have the 4 options ( “Company Logo Socks” etc) set up as components. For each of those, on hover, there is a new state, and then when you click on the hover it swaps the overlay to show it is selected.

That’s where the issue happens – once I click on the component to select it, I can no longer get the hovers to work on the other elements, or can’t click the next button.

Any thoughts here?

Hey @Caitlin_Marr, yes, the overlay appears on top of everything, and in order to be able to interact with other elements (which are overlapped), you need to close the overlay.

@tank666 Rats! I was afraid of that.

I signed up for the beta, since that seems like it would help! Do you know how long it takes to get approved? Was hoping to get this prototype out today :sweat_smile:

Usually you need to wait 3 business days.

Gotcha, thank you for the help and info!

I figured out a workaround by having the click navigate to a new identical page. More work for me, but it’s doable for now!
