figma.currentPage is not being set as expected

As a basic example, I’m trying to create a Cover page and set that page as the Figma.currentPage. However, in the console.log of the currentPage, it still show as “Page 1” instead of “Cover”. The actual Figma app does switch to the “Cover” page, but I don’t understand why console.log is showing “Page 1” instead of “Cover” as the currentPage. This is causing frames I want to create on the “Cover” page to be created on “Page 1” instead.

What am I missing to ensure that Figma has successfully set currentPage to “Cover” before I create frames? Or is there a way to create frames directly on the “Cover” page without having to set it as the currentPage?

I think the weird part of this bug is it only happens the first time running the plugin on a new file? If I run it again, the issue doesn’t occur.

The output to the console occurs before the page actually switches due to asynchrony. This is where the currentpagechange event can help you.

But instead, I would create the necessary objects on the current page, and then insert them into the desired one using the appropriate methods.
