How to create animations in Bubble.io?

Creating animations in Bubble.io enhances the interactivity and visual appeal of your application. To get started with animations for your elements, follow these simplified steps:

Step 1: Open your Bubble.io editor and navigate to the page where you wish to add animations.

Step 2: Choose the element on the page that you want to animate. This can be a button, an image, a text box, or any other UI component.

Step 3: Look for the "Property Editor" pane, which is typically on the right-hand side once an element is selected.

Step 4: Scroll down in the "Property Editor" until you find the "Appearance" section.

**Step 5: **In the “Appearance” section, locate the option for animations. Here, you will have the ability to select an animation style for when the element becomes visible or hidden. You can choose whether an element's animation will "Fade In/Out" or "Slide Up/Down".

**Step 6: **Select the direction of the animation by choosing from "Left," "Right," "Up," or "Down," which configures how your chosen animation will proceed relative to the page or container.

**Step 7: **Once you have selected your animation type and direction, go to the Workflow Editor by clicking on the "Workflow" tab at the top of the page.

Step 8: Create or edit a workflow that triggers the show/hide action of the element. For example, you might have a button that when clicked, will show or hide another element with the specified animation.

Step 9: In the workflow, add an action to show or hide the element. When setting up this action, you’ll be able to apply the animation options you previously configured.

Remember to preview your application to see the animations in action and adjust as necessary for timing, smoothness, and the overall user experience.

Note: If you are working with a group element and you wish to animate it in a context where the underlying data of a repeating group is changing, be aware that the Animation Style might not be supported. In such cases, it's recommended to use the repeating group's built-in update functionality instead of adding a separate animation.
