  2. Select a text object within your Figma design that you want to convert into an input field.
  3. Click the "+" button on the "Interactive Input Field" menu.

Adding an Output Field

  1. Select the interactive input field you want to use as the value source.
  2. Click the "+" button under the "Select output field" section.
  3. Choose a text object within the Figma page to display the output.

Previewing Interactions

Previewing interactions in Figma using the ProtoPie Genie plugin is a straightforward process.

Previewing a Single Interaction

  1. Select the interaction you wish to preview within the plugin.
  2. Click the arrow button on the interaction's property panel.

Previewing a Figma Flow

  1. Select a Figma flow from the options at the bottom of the ProtoPie Genie plugin.
  2. Click the "Preview" button.
