Bug: interaction hotspots trigger below fixed elements

  1. Describe the problem your experiencing and how your idea helps solve this
    A scrollable (clickable) list of items triggers the interaction even if a fixed element overlaps it. Additionally, this bug occurs even if that overlaping element has a “Tap → None”

  2. Add as much context as possible (screenshots, Figma files, mockups, etc.)
    Stumbled upon this issue when I had to position an iOS keyboard on top of an interactive list of elements.

Demo file and steps to reproduce:

  1. Start the prototype from
  2. Click the gray bottom rectangle with or without scrolling
  3. It wrongly triggers the hotspot from the “background” items

I came across the same issue. Looks like it is a bug.
Workaround: Select your scrolling area frame and enable Clip content. Worked for me.
But obviously, the mere fact that your content layer is already under your keyboard layer should auto-clip in my opinion…
