Following a viewer should show overlays

When following a person viewing my prototype, I would like to see any overlays they are interacting with. Overlays are not seen from my end when following, so it just looks like a mouse floating around the frame underneath.

Hi @Kathi_Fleming, Thanks for sharing your thoughts about overlays!

I’ve run a few tests on my side but so far, I haven’t been able to reproduce the behavior you described with overlays when using the spotlight in presentation view.

I have a couple follow-up questions:
Does this issue occur in the desktop app, in the browser, or both?
Are any other collaborators experiencing the same issue?

If the issue still persists after these checks, would you mind leaching out our support team for further investigation here?: https://help.figma.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
