Hi I'm new to the creator. Need help linking hands to progression

Hi there, I need help. I have a heart, steps and battery progression in my design but I would like to add some custom hands to work with them.

How do I link the hands to the progression so they move with usage.

Many thanks

Hello, welcome to forum.
depends how do you like the hands to move but in general you can use tags for the heart #ZHR#, battery #BLN# and steps #ZSC# in expression for the rotation as follows:
TAG*[angle range/max value]+[starting angle]
For reverse direction:
[starting angle]-TAG*[angle range/max value]

Welcome @BlackLab . I have looked at your faces . very nice . The question is simple the answer is difficult .
The basic thing is you need some hands with the pivot point in the middle of your Image Image must be PNG with transparent Border . Very soon you will have many answers on here .
I would suggest you try inspect the work of others . Also there are many resources for hands in the Community.

See here a test if you want the hand to go the other way remove the - minus sign .

If you want less than 360 degree travel that is another story . Get back if you need more help.

Thanks for the reply. Where do I input the different tags. I am using affinity designer at the moment.

Please keep us in touch and show us your Progress . :slightly_smiling_face:

I also made some battery hands and faces that use them. In this example the watch hand rotates anticlockwise with drain and the phon clockwise:

These are the hands:
