Choose how states should work when grouping objects
Dec 30, 2022
I have a menu slide with many objects (pictures, ovals, text), some of them having hover states and being disabled until their assigned variable reaches the proper value.
Now I grouped them and wanted to move and animate the groups as a whole, and keep them grouped in order to have them share the same entry effect and not have an unmanageable timeline that does look like a total mess.
Now, when those objects are grouped, it seems that the hover states apply to all the group at once, but not the disabled state. Fine to me, I just added a disabled state and made it the initial state on the other objects of the group.
So isn't this a bug ? Shouldn't the objects keep their own states when grouped ? And when there are concurrent states in the group objects, which of them will prevail ?
Of course, group states do not seem feasible without loosing each object individuality, which would be a regression I'd say. That said, couldn't there be some kind of group options, like "keep the states distinct", "Choose hover state", ... ?
Anyways, please tell me if a should file an improvement request in your bug tracker.
Thanks for your help :)
