Last Update: January 14, 2024

The Entrance Animations feature lets you animate your Widgets, Sections, and Columns. This way, as your site visitor scrolls down the page, the elements appear with an entrance animation.

Note: Elementor respects the “reduced motion property” preference that a user may set. If a user has set any of the following, then motion effects will be disabled for that user:

  • Mac: “System Preferences > Accessibility > Display” and check/un-check the box for “Reduce motion”
  • iOS: “Settings > General > Accessibility” and turn on/off “Reduce Motion”
  • Windows 10: “Settings > Ease of Access > Display > Simplify and Personalise Windows” and turn on/off “Show Animations in Windows”

Note: In Safari, if you are not seeing mouse effects, or you are experiencing the problem of elements disappearing in Safari, this is due to an old jQuery version being used by WordPress. In some cases, viewing Mouse Track effects via Safari might cause a jQuery error which will cause elements to disappear, such as missing carousel arrows, for example. If this happens, you may also see an error which references “maximum call stack size exceeded”. To resolve the issue, either remove entrance animations from widgets with motion effects and/or remove mouse effects from areas that have both scrolling and mouse effects simultaneously activated.
