Animate page elements
Animations bring life and motion to your Web Story pages. Learn how to mindfully add them to your Web Stories.
Use built-in animations to add a dynamic punch to your Web Stories. Animate an element by:
- Select the element on the canvas
- Open the "Animations" drop down in the Design Panel
- Select the desired animation
- Specify animation duration and delay
Use the Play button below the canvas to play all animations on the page directly within the editor.
While animations are a great way to bring life to Web Stories, they can become obnoxious or distracting when overused.
Check out our animations editorial guidelines to learn about best practices.
First Page Animations
Animations on the first page of a story are not supported in Web Stories, because they would negatively affect user experience and page experience of stories.
Disabling first page animations positively impacts user engagement metrics such as bounce rate and overall time spent on a story.
For this reason, it is not possible to add or edit animations for elements on the first page of the story in the Web Stories editor.
