I honestly find it absolutely ridiculous to remove the function of hiding group focus. I don’t necessarily care about the toggle workflow, that is simply a convenience. But with the toggle removed we could no longer have conditional workflows to hide them either. I.e. “if group focus is visible - hide element”
And with the flimsy excuse that “it’s not the expected behaviour of a group focus”. Which is completely missing the point of how the group focus is being used by Bubble’s users. And is simply forcing users, like yourself, to come up with more labour intense solutions to circumvent the “blockade” for lack of a better word.
There are many different usages for a group focus elements, drop down, context menus, tool tip and so on. Many of which where a toggle would definitely be expected behaviour. To me this sounds like “we have a narrow idea of how this element should be used, and won’t consider how it’s actually being used by our users”.
BUT… although no one from Bubble replied to this thread (perhaps it was never seen) the “broken” function of hiding group focus have been reverted back once again and it is now possible to hide them. So you don’t have to jump through all kinds of hoops of swapping elements, using custom states, or touching your nose and spinning three times.
