Swipe gestures (left/right) to work only when in viewport?

Hi there,

I am looking to use the ‘on swipe left’ and ‘on swipe right’ gestures as part of the web design for the mobile / tablet layouts. I have currently set the on swipe left to continue a timeline and on swipe right to continue the same timeline but in reverse as it is a slideshow of images it it controlling.

The website is a long scrollable page however the image slide show is only a small section of it. There isn’t anywhere else on the page where these gestures will be needed.

I wondered if I could disable the swipe gestures until the image slideshow content is in view. Otherwise swiping left and right is controlling the slideshow whether it is in view or not.

Any help appreciated,


you should use a swipeaction on an element, not on a whole scene …

Put the image slideshow in a symbol. Hype symbols also have swipe gestures built in. Just transfer over the animations and voilá.


I didn’t know that option existed.

Thanks for your help!

Thanks @DBear ! Just had a look into this and swapped over the animation. Works great!

Thanks again
