We add external hyperlinks to inline and standalone text in our Figma UI designs.
Both our UX/UI and Frontend teams prefer this to another way of specifying hyperlinks in our designs.
- Clicking hyperlinks always sends us to the external pages.
- In Dev-Mode the only way to copy the hyperlink in a text is to open the hyperlink in browser and copying the link from browser’s address bar.
- Clicking hyperlinks in design and dev mode opens a little info with the actual hyperlink and the option to copy or open it (e.g. similiar to the edit hyperlink function in design mode)
- Include hyperlinks in the inspect panel
