Conditionally format visibility of reusable element

After a reusable element has been created, and it is placed on a page and we have the limited editor options available

it would be very helpful for responsive design to allow for a conditional to set the visibility of the reusable element.

My use case for the one in the screen shot is that it is a product menu for the left side of screen…I want to hide/show it based on current page width. Would be helpful to have that on the editor instead of needing to use conditionally formatted workflows.


Make the reusable element a group and place it in a floating group


Thanks Ali…I had already made the reusable element and have the formatting etc. all polished up on it. I was placing it on the page to use it and needed to hide/show it based on current page width.

What I did as a workaround was created a group on the page and placed the reusable element inside that group. Then on the group element I placed the conditional to make the group visible or not based on current page width.

It is a simple enough work around, although would be nice to get that conditional functionality on the reusable element instead.


Yes, I agree

Faced the same issue on several occasions but i don’t think this is an easy fix for the guys over at Bubble. Let’s hope this is on there list of things to do in the future.

Had the same issue and this is a very simple hack that does the job :slight_smile:

Hi @boston85719 and @AliFarahat , I have a similar use case and I tried creating a group and placing the reusable element (which is my sidebar menu) into the group but it won’t let me. I just cannot seem to place the element in the group. Tried dragging it in, clicking it in. nothing…
Can you walk me through how you did it? I’m still only a couple of weeks old in using

Ok i fixed it! hah. I realised i made the reusable element a floating group and such groups cannot be put into another group. Now that i changed it to normal group i was able to add it to a group.

Probably might also be better UI if it’s not a floating group.
