I'm updated to 12.0.12.10 version of Adobe XD but the time trigger is not showing on the prototype part of xd

 

Can anyone help me?

Hey there,

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.

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.

Hi,

I have the latest version of Adobe xd 14.0.42.14.

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.

Thanks,

G

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.

If you don't mind me asking what did you do to fix this? I'm having the same problem. I upgraded to Version 22.3.12.2 and am not finding the trigger option. I have multiple artboards set up and even when the artboard is selected I don't have the "time" trigger option.

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.

Hi there,

 

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.

 

Thanks,

Harshika

  1. Select the Prototype Tab (top-left menu)
  2. Select Artboard (top-left title, ex. Web 1920) 
  3. Click the "+" in the Interactions Nav (right-side of the screen)
  4. This will create an Artboard trigger that includes "Time" in the [Trigger] dropdown. This will automatically link it to the nearest Artboard.
  5. Then just drag the connecter to the desired Artboard
  6. When selecting the connector you will now have Time as an option
