How do I create page transitions?

Page Transitions can be an aesthetic improvement for your website visitors. They may provide a smoother flow between pages or on page loading. They may also be used to help give time for video backgrounds or other assets to load before display. By using Elementor’s preset styles or combinations, along with the preloader icons (or your own custom ones), the possibilities are endless.

Locating The Settings

The settings for Page Transitions can be found by navigating to your Site Settings; these are located in the top corner of your editor by clicking the hamburger icon.

Note: In order to use Page Transitions on existing websites, they first must be activated by navigating to Elementor > Settings > Experiments. Page Transitions will be activated by default on new installations.
