Animate text input

Hello,

I’d like to animate a text input box, as if the user was typing something.
See this gif for example: Dropbox - hello.gif - Simplify your life
(I just want to animate the text, not to allow the user to really type something).

I can’t find an easy way to do that.

Do you have any idea?

Thanks for your help
Matt

There is no easy way to achieve this, but you may find this interesting:

Thanks Andrei. But I believe that’s a sort of “real” text input. I just want to animate a text actually, letter by letter.
The only way I found to do that is to create one overlay per letter … which is fastidious …

I don’t think you can achieve this in Figma, unfortunately.
@Gleb made something similar to animating an input field with this: https://figma.fun/iIT6TI

I have no idea how it’s made, though. :frowning_face:

bad luck. Thanks anyway for your help!
