How to the »…« character in text

Not sure if it’s also impossible in the Web-Application, but in the Desktop Application I cannot type the Ellipsis character (the three dots) in a text layer.

I am able to insert this character on MacOS using the emoji/symbol picker, or by copy/pasting it in. Figma doesn’t automatically convert three periods into the though, if that’s how you’re trying to do it.

I always typing … with Shortcut Option + . on Mac.

I can type it fine using the Option + ; shortcut in desktop on a text layer.

What font are you using? Does it have the … glyph?
