Collapse animation hides overflow

See original GitHub issue

🐛 Bug report

Elements wrapped in Collapse animation can’t overflow it. It causes problems for dropdowns.

💥 Steps to reproduce

  1. Go to
  2. Click on ‘Click Me’
  3. Open Dropdown
  4. Options should be clipped
  5. Click on ‘Toggle Theme’
  6. Options should not be clipped

💻 Link to reproduction

🧐 Expected behavior

Collapse should allow overflow.

🧭 Possible Solution

Workaround is provided in Codesandbox. For a actual solution, I think that removing overflow: hidden from here would do. I can provide PR if that’s okay.

@dusty best I came up with is this hack:

// theme.ts
const styles = {
  global: {
    ':not(.chakra-dont-set-collapse) > .chakra-collapse': {
      overflow: 'initial !important',

export const theme = extendTheme({

by default, it sets overflow: initial !important so that overflow is visible. sometimes that’s not what you want. you can then set className="chakra-dont-set-collapse"

.chakra-collapse[style*="height: auto"] { overflow: initial !important }
