What are Overlays?

Overlays allow you to show new content on top of other content. Overlays are very similar to links, except they have a transparent background and appear on top of the original page.

Overlays can be used for many use cases: modal windows, drop-down menus, pop-up notifications, all without leaving your current screen.

In this example, the payment method is an overlay.

It is as easy as creating two links!

Creating Overlays

  • Select the Layer that will trigger the Overlay
  • Click Prototype tab > Flow > Links > Connect it to the Overlay artboard
  • Mark the ‘Overlay’ check-box

Anima Panel > Prototype > Flow > Links > Overlays

  • Click ‘Edit Transition’ to customize the animation between the two artboards. You can control the Direction, Duration, Delay and Curve.
    Or even embed your own CSS if you like to.

Edit Transition

Dismiss Overlay

  • Select the Layer that will dismiss the Overlay, and link it to the ‘Dismiss Overlay’ option at the top menu bar

Tip!

Change the artboard background color to a transparent color. So you could see the original artboard underneath. Make sure that it is “Include in export”.
