Figma prototypes are one of the most powerful tools in a designer’s arsenal. They enable designers to quickly create interactive, high-fidelity prototypes that look and feel like real applications.
However, one limitation of Figma prototypes is that they don’t natively support scrolling. This means that if you want your prototype to have any scrolling elements, you need to add them manually.
Adding a scroll in Figma is actually quite simple and straightforward. First, select the object or group that you want to scroll.
Then, open up the “Prototype” tab in the left sidebar. From there, you can set up your scroll action by selecting the “Scroll” option from the dropdown menu.
Once you’ve chosen “Scroll” from the dropdown menu, you can customize several settings including scroll speed and direction. You can also specify whether it should be vertical or horizontal scrolling, which is useful if you want to create a carousel or parallax effect. Additionally, if your object is part of a larger group or page, you can choose to only scroll within this area.
After configuring all of your settings, it’s time to test out your newly created scroll action! To do this, simply click on the play button at the top right corner of the Figma window. This will launch an interactive prototype preview where you can test out your scroll action and make sure everything works as expected.
Conclusion: Adding a scroll in Figma prototype is an easy task that requires just a few steps. All you need to do is select the object or group that needs to be scrolled, open up the “Prototype” tab in the left sidebar and choose “Scroll” from the dropdown menu. From there, adjust any settings necessary and test out your newly created scroll action by clicking on the play button at the top right corner of Figma window!
