Overlay via hover not possible?
I noticed I cannot put a Hover-Interaction on a component to trigger an overlay. When I use Hover, it only allows switching between states. And when I set a new Element and try to let it trigger an Overlay, the Option "Hover" is not even given in the Interaction-Menü.
Is this a bug or a non-improvement?
Unfortunately, this is not supported at the moment. Can you explain to me what you’re trying to accomplish?
To have Hover as a Trigger option (on interaction menu) would be really helpful, it allows more complex prototypes. Protopie does it perfectly.
Meanwhile my user testing quality is been negatively affected by it, I can't achieve a high-fidelity prototype.
Jumping in to leave a vote for hover interactions. Would be helpful for tooltips and menu dropdowns for my use case.
Jumping into this to ask for this also, many websites use Hover nav triggering different elements that cant be added to a component. Making a hover a click for prototyping isn't representative of the actual experience.

Vertical navigation is where this becomes very problematic. As the commenter below has stated, when creating a secondary nav menu on hover, it overlaps the other links below making this functionality useless.
Really need this to be possible for my prototypes. Right now I'm at a difficult place where I can't move forward on a project till I find a work around :(
Yeah I need that functionality too. We need hover over actions for a lot of things like tips, menu highlight, etc.
When you select Trigger: Hover, then Action, Type:Overlay, it automatically reverts Trigger:Hover to Trigger:Tap.
I have an issue where I want to show some text (A, B, C) on hover of 1, but once goes to hover, the touch target expands to the full area of the state and overlaps the other hover touch targets (2, 3)
This feature would allow us to make menus where, as you hover each navigation item, a different related image can appear on the side. Similar to this website: https://jacobmckee.com/index where, as the mouse hovers over the list on the right, a related video is displayed on the left.
