How do I change a gesture or transition?

Setting gestures and transitions

There are three ways to set gestures and transitions:

1. Hover over one of your links, then click the button that appears. You'll find the options for changing gestures and transitions here.

2. Once a link is created, you can click on the widget it is linked to and the link settings menu will appear in the tool bar. You can access the link's gestures and transitions from here.

3. You can change the default transition and gesture from the project's settings (you'll find this inside the home menu or at the bottom of the page settings).

When you change the default link settings, each new link you create will automatically be set to the transition and gesture you have chosen. You can of course always change the gesture and transition options for links individually as explained in point 1.

Tip: You should chose the transitions and gestures which are typical of the device you are designing for.
