Menu animation - mutually exclusive selection

Principle Version: 6.12
macOS Version:11.6 (20G165)
Description of what you need help with:

Create a left hand menu - without having to create an artboard for every selected menu option, is there a way to “unselect” a selected menu option when a new one is selected?

For example, a left hand menu with 5 categories (e.g. home, page 1, page 2, etc.), where home is in a selected state and when clicking on menu option “page 1” the “home” menu option is deselected (e.g. visually looks like it’s unselected) and “Page 1” is now selected.

The only way I know how to do it, is to create an artboard for every state and have it transition to each one. Is there an easier way? Thank you.

You can get fancy with components and component messages, but honestly I don’t think that would make much sense or save you work. One way or another, to display different contents in the section on the right, you would need a separate artboard corresponding to each row.
