Interactions order


#1

I’ve noticed a problem with the interactions panel that can be a bit annoying. Sometimes when doing complex animations, it can be important to have your commands inside of a group (a set that starts at the same time) in a specific order. For example, lets say I have a set of 5 divs… 1 2 3 4 5… I might want them to stay in that order as a group because perhaps they rotate in that order (or something like that, it doesn’t matter).

Then, let’s say I duplicate that group. I might need that order to change to 2 3 4 5 1 (for sake of clarity as I assemble the animation. Then 3 4 5 1 2; 4 5 1 2 3, and so on. However, if I test the animation in view mode and come back, those layer orders have now changed to something random. Does this make sense? If I set the divs in a certain order in the interactions panel, I want them to stay in that order.

Hi @scottiejhaines

Thanks for posting about this. I think I understand what the issue is but I’m having a hard time reproducing it on my end. Can you please share a Read-Only link to a project where this is happening? Any screenshots or recordings are also helpful.

​Thanks in advance.

Hmm, I can’t replicate it anymore either (without changing values). I’m thinking it may have had something to do with trying to reorder elements in a duplicated group and moving to another panel before changing the values of the new group.

On a side note. In the animation panel, it would be nice if we could drag-and-drop elements within groups instead of just to the bottom of a group.

Here is the Webflow link if you still want it. This was a sandbox example for another user, so no big rush. This isn’t for a client.
