What is ProtoPie Genie?

Great news for Figma users! If you've ever felt that your design prototypes lacked dynamic interactions, our new beta plugin, ProtoPie Genie, is here to help.

ProtoPie Genie is designed for designers who use Figma to prototype their work and want to add more realistic interactions. As a beta version, ProtoPie Genie offers an early glimpse into its powerful features, allowing you to enhance your prototypes with advanced interactivity directly within Figma.

How does the ProtoPie Genie plugin work?

In the initial release of ProtoPie Genie, the "Interactive Input Field" feature allows you to seamlessly input text into your Figma prototype using the device keyboard.

Here’s how to add an interactive input field to your Figma design:

  1. Select a text object to designate as the input field.
  2. Add the object to the "Interactive Input Field" interaction.
  3. Assign text objects as output fields to display the entered text.
