Label Description Layout Width Column Width

Smartphones to Tablets Larger smartphones and small tablets 767px and below 100% fluid
Tablets Larger tablets 768px and above 64px

The animated elements that trigger as you scroll down the page are handled via classes applied to widgets. These classes are either included in the Custom Variations field or in-line in the content.

You can find a visual example as well as the class names of classes that are supported by Ricochet on the Animate.css project site.

The element that triggers this animation during scrolling is explained in greater detail in the WOW.js Documentation.
