Feature Request - Usability Testing Mode in Prototype Presentation.
What it is: In Prototype Presentation, add a feature - “Usability Testing Mode” that stops the cursor from changing to a pointing hand when users hover over buttons.
Why: Currently, in prototype mode, when setting the device to “None”, “MacBook Air”, “MacBook Pro 14”, “MacBook Pro 16”, “Custom Size”, and “Presentation”, the cursor will change to a pointing hand when hovering over buttons. This makes sense since most websites and desktop software change the cursor to a pointing hand when it’s close to a clickable button/UI. However, there is a need for a “Usability Testing” mode that disables this cursor behavior due to the following two groups of people:
- UX Researchers who need to do User Testing on prototypes and don’t want this cursor behavior to spoil clickable areas. Solely disabling hotspots in prototypes is just not enough!
- UX Designers who work at a desktop software company where the software itself doesn’t change the cursor to a pointing hand when hovering a clickable button/UI. Just to name a few: Adobe, Apple, Figma, Microsoft, etc. Their software typically has numerous clickable UIs on the workspace.
