I have an input component where I want several text elements – placeholder text, value, help text, error text – to be optional. I want these to be blank in the component, as they’re only used sometimes. But if I delete all the text from a text element in my component, Figma just deletes it. Am I missing something?
I have two workarounds right now, both of which I don’t love:
- Create a Layer property to toggle the visibility of the text element and then a separate property for the text itself. That adds up to a lot of extra clicks for the designers.
- Put a single space in the text field. Ew.
I’m hoping this is something simple that I’ve just overlooked! Thanks to anyone who can help.
