Hi there,


I'm running into some challenges in using the hover with morphSVG plugin. What I'm trying to do is to have an object morph from shape to shape on the basis of what menu item is currently hovered over.  I'm sure I'm overlooking something basic. Thank you in advance for your help. Thanks!

Hi @ericshew :)


The most noticeable problem is line 19.

//Switch this
tl.reversed() ? tl.play() : tl.reversed();

//to this
tl.reversed() ? tl.play() : tl.reverse();


That should get everything working for you. It can certainly work with playing and reversing the timelines like that, but you'll see some harsh morph jumps when hovering on/off quickly between <li> tags. You could get some smoother morphs with rapid hovering like this:

Just my two cents worth. Hopefully that helps. Happy tweening.
