I see, thank you for clarification. I think the problem there is, as far as I remember, in order to reach an upper component state, the interaction element should be a static element, not a component (Although we can go back from the 3rd slide to 2nd with the left arrow, I'm not sure but still 🙂 Maybe that's because the left arrow is not a component in 3rd artboard, that's why it works there) As far as I can see from the icons, left arrow is a component, and the right one is just a folder.

Hi @Martin24694738gvxk, it would be great if you could mention the structure more (even better if you could share some simulated file/prototype if you're not able to share the actual file's elements) as far as I understand, there are carousel buttons with different states and the whole carousel including buttons is a component, you're having problem while trying to reach the component states in prototype mode, using the buttons, is that right? Going to check later if you give more info 🙂

Hi @AkinGn,

That sounds correct. Sorry if my verbage is confusing, I am relativly new to this.

Here is what i am working on. As you can see, you cannot click the left arrow to go back to Default state.

I'd suggest ungrouping the left component and probably you'll see the upper component's state as destination. Let me know if this doesn't help, I can investigate further or maybe some other expert can suggest something else. Hope this helps!

That worked, thanks! I made that left arrow a component because I wanted to make it get bigger when hovered over, but I think I am just getting ahead of myself here

Glad to hear it 🙂 Hmm if I'd really want hover effect on the carousel buttons, instead of making the whole carousel a component, I'd keep the buttons as components and make carousel transitions between the artboards, as you mentioned in your first post.
