Hide elements by default

Is there a way to hide elements by default on screen load?


I have a box that should only appear on hovering over a certain elementy. If I hide the box by clicking the eye-symbol in the outline editor and aswell disable "show components marked as hidden" it's still shown when simulating the prototype.


If I hide the box with a page load event it flickers when starting the prototype.


Is there another way?

You have to push the eye in the Properties panel, not in the Outline view.

Ah, I couldn't see that icon when I hid the element in the outline properites. Thanks, now it's working!

Nice. I missed that as well. I "solved" that by creating a blank rectangle and hiding that to reveal the div I wanted.


It's a poor kludge because when you have several actions layered over each other this technique doesn't work well.
