@Karen, you can add timer after the mouse is clicked. And this timer will stop timeline animation whenever you want. For example, inside 'mousedown touchstart' event listener add setTimout after your tl.start() method, like this:

setTimeout(() => {
}, 400);

400 it is your animation timing, which is 0.4.


Also, I recommend you to replace tl.reverse() with a new morphSVG animation which will morph into the original state. Because a simple reverse looks  unnatural.

Hey Karen and welcome to the forums! Thanks for being a Business Green member. We couldn't do what we do without people like you.


I would actually recommend using two separate tweens in this case, as Aleksei suggests. That way you have full control over the way each is easing. You could set it up like so:
