Add pinch to zoom in and out interactions in prototypes

Often when prototyping tools/UIs with canvases, a few fundamental interactions are needed.

  1. Scroll up/down
  2. Scroll left/right
  3. Zoom in/out

Unfortunately, that last zoom in/out one isn’t possible in Figma as far as I can tell. It would be really great to incorporate this type of interaction in the same place that frame scrolling can be specified.

Prototyping use cases:

  1. UIs with Maps (tracking apps, location apps, travel apps, delivery apps, etc)
  2. UIs with creative canvases (illustrator, photoshop, Figma, sketch, etc)
  3. UIs for analysis tools (spatial biology analysis, general sample analysis, etc)
  4. UIs for brainstorming tools (Figjam, Miro, google whiteboard, etc)

This feels like it would be relatively basic to add but what do I know about programing lol. Anyways, would be really awesome and add a new dimension of interactivity to canvas based tools.
