I'm updated to 18.104.22.168 version of Adobe XD but the time trigger is not showing on the prototype part of xd
Can anyone help me?
For some better context,
I have tried 'check for updates' just in case it was displaying the wrong version, reloaded creative cloud and Adobe XD but the feature still isn't showing.
It's a bit tricky and we should work to improve this but...timed triggers can only be applied on the artboard itself. So just make sure you select the source artboard first when associating the transition to your overlay. The option should then be available.
I dont get the transition option.
I have the latest version of Adobe xd 22.214.171.124.
I try to connect the whole artboard to another and I only have 3 Trigger options showing up: Tap, Drag and Voice. I watched various videos and looked into forums and cannot fix this problem.
Can you help me with this?
These are the steps I take:
Step 1: wire the source artboard to the second. Trigger: Voice, Action: Transition
Step 2: The second artboard shoiuld have the option of Time trigger. But there isn't one.
You have to wire that second artboard to another artboard first... then select the artboard by clicking on the title of the artboard, then click the blue end of the wire that your artboard is transitioning to: That's one easy way.
Again, only artboards can have Time transitions, not content.
I'm not sure if you realized this, but your instructions are useless. The problem is that the time trigger is not showing up AT ALL! Even after I've wired the artboard to a second artboard, when I go to the arrow icon to select my trigger, the only options available are tap, drag and voice. Time is not an option!
Time triggers only show up for artboard selections, not object selections. You’ll need to select the artboard (click on the title) and then wire that to show the time trigger.
Yeah, I was able to get help in another forum shortly after posting my comment. Thanks anyway.
Thank you! This helped me so much!
Usually what may happen is that the designer is linking a background image insted of the wireframe (that is behind). Try do move the image and then check where the link comes from, if it is from the background or from the wireframe.
I did as mentioned above "only artboards can have Time transitions, not content." Don't forget about it
It would be better to mention that somewhere while prototyping. The Time Trigger option can be shown but disabled (sort of) while selecting the elements in the Artboard. We were searching for a long time to find that out.
wow finally! thank you!
I agree, i couldn't find it until now and didn't find any information about it and its such a simple solution.
thanks for help me
Time trigger doesn't work while auto animating the artboards? Why? and is there any alternative for it?
We are sorry to hear you're experiencing issue using time trigger while using auto animate in XD. I am unable to reproduce the same at my end on windows machine. Is it possible for you to share a short video of your workflow for better understanding so that I can try to replicate at my end? I would also request you to please share the OS and XD version of your machine.
I will try my best to help.
I just ran into the same problem. Which is this: for some reason I'm actually selecting an element inside the artboard, not the artboard itself, when I think I'm selecting the artboard (I click the artboard label, not the artboard contents, to select the whole artboard. But still...)
What helped? I had to lock and hide each of the elements on the artboard, and after that when I clicked the artboard, the artboard was selected as the interaction source, not some random element inside the artboard... A bit annoying because then you have to unlock and unhide each element after that. But worked.
I hope this helped!
PS. I've seen a lot of prototyping tools during my long career and I think this is the easiest to learn quickly, not too "sophisticated" with different interaction methods (like Axure for example) but has still some basic tools I need to create prototypes. But: I find there are still a lot of usability issues (and it's already 2022 soon!) I hope Adobe keeps developing this tool further.
Thank you very much, you solved my problem
