I’ve been spending the last 3-4 hours to trying to solve this issue that seems like it should be extremely straight forward. Hoping someone can help me out here. Basically, I’m loading thumbnail photos into an Asset Grid from an Excel spreadsheet. I am also loading high resolution versions of the same photos from the same spreadsheet into an Asset Flow collection. The intent of the design is to allow users to browse through smaller thumbnails and then load a high resolution version of the photo they want into what we typically call a “lightbox” in the web world. Additionally, I want users to be able to swipe back and forth between these full screen images, once they are in light box mode.
To accomplish this, I created an action that takes the name of the thumbnail asset the user selected and puts it into a Global Variable. The next action instructs the Asset Flow collection of the high res images to “Scroll to an item” name. For that, I’m simply telling it to use the asset name that was just logged into the variable. Unfortunately this is not working and I do not understand why. Both of these collections are referencing the exact same spreadsheet, so the names of each row are exactly the same.
In troubleshooting this, I even created a text field that displays whatever the variable is currently set to. I then have the name of the asset being shown in the Asset Flow overlaid on top of the image loaded to verify that the name I’m telling the Asset Flow to scroll to is the same. Even though I know with 100% certainty that the asset name the collection is being told to scroll to exists, it simply will not do it. I even simplified it by creating a button that just tells the asset flow to scroll to that asset name and it still doesn’t work.
This all leaves me to believe that the Asset Flow action to “Scroll to an item” based on the name is broken. Am I missing something here? Would appreciate the help as this simple functionality is critical to the design of a project we’re working to deliver for a client.
