Guys, what's a good general approach to multi-screen prototypes and segues between them? Do you just create a new layer for each, put it off screen, and then move it in place? I'm pretty sure I'm reinventing the wheel here, so I'd appreciate any existing code examples. Thanks!

Exactly what I am struggling with. The "Prototypes" on the examples page have a few approaches that I am trying to unpack.

Josef Richter, yeah, basically. If you package all of your views' contents as subLayers, it should be no problem. So for instance, I might have viewA and viewB. Each layer I create that belongs to those views would use viewA or viewB as their superLayer. That way, when I slide viewA and viewB back and forth, or whatever transition I'm looking for, all their contents move along with them. http://framerjs.com/docs/#layer.superLayer

Yep. Basically. Make sure you set it off the screen by using the screen width. I don't know how many prototypes I've seen that you can see a peek of the other screens on the side.

Framer.Device.screen.width is what you want.
