Overlays cause "connection issues" in Figma app prototype

While testing my prototype on the Figma app (latest version) the entire prototype works flawlessly except for overlays, which darkens the screen while buffering, and then states “connection issues, please go online to continue with the prototype”. Clicking “try again” buffers again with the same result.


Having the same issue. After tapping “Go back” it seems to be OK, but I don’t want to test on a user with this workaround.

Agreed, this totally breaks the flow and is something preventing me from conducting user tests.

I’m experiencing the same issue. And it’s there all the time on the app. There is no way I can use the app to demonstrate or even test a prototype.

I am experiencing the same issue… Huh so frustrating
