Reopening a thread for interest in a presentation mode in FigJam (here’s the original thread that’s now closed).
Of course someone can follow a specific user as they zoom and scroll through a board, but the viewer experience–especially for those unfamiliar with FigJam–could be improved if a specific presentation mode existed. Thinking similar to Miro’s, which would mean also needed to add “frame” elements to be able to have it function like a slide deck.
Really would like this feature. Now I have to go to Figma Design to make presentations, but it’s a bit exclusive to only people in the team who can use Figma Design. Many more people know how to use FigJam (or can quickly learn).
We are currently thinking to migrate from Miro to FigJam, and one of the things that I do a lot as a researcher is to present findings in a compelling way and a presentation mode is perfect for this as other distracting elements (such as the tools bar) or the grid are hidden away.
I just tested the Tour Guide plugin. This is great for getting some of the Miro presentation mode features mentioned here, in figjam.
I found that using a frame in 16:9 proportions with screen designs overflowing worked well for both navigating a presentation (zoomed in) and panning around the board (zoomed in / out) and going back and forth between the two with arrow keys or the Tour Guide UI. In this case some objects can fit a wide screen frame while others don’t, such as presenting upfront content and then screen designs in from the same figjam.
(I did not test Flyover because it has limits on the free version.)
