Clean Up unused interactions button

I love the "clean up" button inside the style manager menu, but what if the same could be done for interactions that aren't being used by any elements?

Alternatively, maybe a way to see which site elements are using each interaction that has been created (from interactions list)?

    Good news! Now you can clean your interactions panel up by bulk selecting and removing all unused interactions and animations. Read more in our release notes.

    I can see what elements have triggers / animations but I can't for the life of me find which animation is being used. It is from a template I purchased that has a huge amount of animations.

    My list of interactions quickly piles up. Sometimes interactions break, and you need to create new ones — it’s soon impossible to tell which ones are in use and which are not. A file structure and if inactive interactions were grayed out it would be easier. Also a button to clean them all up would be godsent.

    I can understand Webflow's aim is to implement new things. But - please - don't forget things that also need to be addressed. Like this one in particular 

    @webflow - visit these pages more frequently

    I think we are testing a lot of interactions, and it really slows down the designer a lot. hope there is a way to clean up all useless interactions at once

    Yes please. With multiple iterations and users, our interactions get out of control. I also wonder if a growing interactions list slows down the performance of the tool itself. We've got some slooooow prototypes here.

    Must have feature.

    And I already commented on this I see... ha. There you go. An ongoing pain.

    Yes please. We are experimenting a lot while developing the site, and in the end have the right interactions in place. But often we have 20-50 interactions, that were abandoned, but nobody dares to touch them, in case...

    Agreed. Would love to see this feature added in. I always have the urge to clean up old animations, but then constantly risk accidentally deleting an animation that occurs somewhere else throughout the site.

    This would be a massive QoL improvement

    Yap, totally need this. My interactions list on a couple of projects is looking bloated to say the least.

    Also a question: Do we load the all the interaction CSS/JS if the interaction is not used?

    Obviously if so, then this becomes more urgent. Thanks @Webflow

    I would love this too... just too much scrolling down old interactions in a design during development, and when it goes live: it is a mess.

    This is kind of Webflow's true power... a little shocked/surprised it's missing. Same with how you can't organize (or even sort!) interactions. Feels half-baked.
