Floating/fixed action button for a mobile app

Hello - I am prototyping an iOS app in which I want the action button to stay fixed to the bottom of the screen while the user can swipe down to view more content. How can I do this?

You can place all your content inside a dynamic panel with scroll and place the 'floating' button below it.

But then I can not use the gesture swipe to navigate down right? I have to force the user to use the scroll?

You have to set the Vertical Scroll and Horizontal Scroll to Always visible in the dynamic panel's Properites tab.

I really need the ability to create a fixed element that doesn't require interaction with an on-screen scroll bar. It is the one missing feature that has me considering other prototyping tools. "Fixed" or "floating" elements are so critical to any app or web experience (because they are always on-screen and therefore always a part of the UI) that it is a significant defect for Justinmind to not support this. I really want to continue using Justinmind, but this will be the deciding factor when my subscription comes up for renewal.


Thanks for your consideration.
