I recently created a ‘welcome’ or 'onboarding screen using HIDDEN (well more or less) top bar navigation.
Okay, so I know your OP says that you don’t want to use top bar nav, and I assume thats because you can see it and it doesn’t look clean.
Well, if you adjust the settings right, you can ‘hide’ the top bar and just have swipe screens. In this case I am assuming you are okay with a black ‘StatusBar’.
There is a small overlap of nav bar below the Status Bar (about 30px) that will need to be colored to match the Status Bar background.
After the last swipe screen (let’s assume there is a button on it) you can store a variable so the user doesn’t keep coming back to the welcome/ onboarding screens if they’ve already visited it, by having the first swipe page redirect to the main/ home screen.
Hey @hdawc, I’m not able to get the top tab height as short as you have, for some reason. Mine is still considerably taller.
I don’t have the Scroll Enabled feature on Top Tab > Advanced as an option (could that cause it?). But I double-checked my other settings vs yours and don’t see where mine is different. Does it jump out to you?

Don’t use drag and drop (DnD), it’s newer and not as refined. To be fair the original designer is also drag and drop, just a different kind.
I don’t think the Thunkable team thought about the fact that while users of desktop builders like Adalo or Bubble might want to place components anywhere, mobiles generally don’t need that (plus Adalo has snapping to the center, which DnD doesn’t have, so it makes it even more frustrating that Thunkable created a bad implementation of this UI for mobile design…).
As you can tell, I don’t like the DnD designer. It has less advanced features and the centering of text and components is flimsy at best, fortunately they seem to be improving that, but I don’t think all the options I showed you are not in the DnD designer, if they are, they it clearly doesn’t work or doesn’t display properly on the Live app.
Sorry I can’t be of more help, I think if you were using the StP style designer, it would work.
You could try creating it in there, then click the “Convert to Drag and Drop” button and cloning the screen over to your main project?
