Allow designing from within device frame

I’m also having this issue where I can only see the iphone outline when it comes to present mode, but not when I make the frame in design. I want the outline of the phone while I design, not just afterwards. Why is this so hard to make happen? I’ve tried the prototype settings, but it just shows it in a tiny thumbnail and not where I actually need it to be (on design frame area). Please help, I want to be able to design inside the frame with the proper exterior DURING the working process, not just a preview afterwards.

Why even have all the different iphone/ipad/etc frames if you’re just giving white boxes? Why not make every single one come with the appropriate outline and then people can toggle on/off visibility as they choose?

Hey @Elise_D, sorry for the confusion!

You can choose a device from the Prototype tab, but the device is only ever shown in the presentation view. No one can edit their design from the Prototype tab; only in the Design tab. We’ll update your reply into its own feature request topic.

We’ll gauge interest for this capability from the community and use it for future consideration.

hey there! thanks for your reply! yes, it’d be great to have that added as a feature request. I don’t know how to gauge placement of my elements without the boundaries of the iphone mask. Having a white blank square isn’t really helpful. Please ask them to make the visibility available in design mode. Thanks!
