On click > simulate key/gamepad press

Dear Figma team,

If you add to “On click” interaction the option as a result/simulation press keyboard key “press key/gamepad”, it would solve the biggest issue all prototype tools have in user tests today. Keyboards don’t work.

INTERACTION - On click > simulate key/gamepad press
it would be possible to simulate a mobile/digital keyboard for prototypes.

example:

1_______________
INTERACTION - key/gamepad “1” > change to “variant 1”

[ 1 ] [ 2 ] [ 3 ]
[ 4 ] [ 5 ] [ 6 ]
[ 7 ] [ 8 ] [ 9 ]
[ 0 ]
INTERACTION - on click > press key/gamepad “1”

Or you could allow 2 interactions with the same keyboard key. ( write 1 / press button 1 ).

The feature is already really nice. It would just make it even better.

Best,
Murilo
