Presenter Notes

I love using Figma for my slide decks but I miss having my notes while in presentation mode. If I could have similar functionality I would adopt Figma as my slide deck tool 100%!

I second this! The best work-around I’ve found is turning on Comment mode while presenting by pressing C. My speakernotes are c/p’ed into a note on each wireframe, and I tuck the bubble into the bottom right corner, even though it’s invisible when not in comment mode anyway.

I’d love presenter’s notes to be added as a feature.

I second this. I certainly don’t want Figma to turn into another Keynote, however presentation mode is there for a reason — to present your ideas effectively. Effective presentation means not forgetting what you wanted to talk about, not having to write down stuff you already have in Figma on a paper or not trying to remember what you put on that next slide… If presentation in Figma is supposed to be actually effective, not just a nice side feature, it definitely needs presenter notes (along with next slide preview).
BTW, got my two extensive presentations designed in Figma now. But I will end up exporting the screens and presenting them from elsewhere just because I can’t afford any presentation hiccups…

Would love to see this feature! I love making presentations in Figma over other traditional tools and feel this is the only thing missing :slight_smile:

With these new power added to Figmas’ prototyping engine, I believe, If a product is rightly prototyped, there is no need for notes.

It will speak for itself

Plus: there is comments perfectly managed to put hidden notes and open them up when needed

This concept of presenter notes is not about prototyping product mockups.

It is for creating a presentation or slideshow, like you would with Microsoft PowerPoint or Apple’s Keynote.

How do you view & read your comments without the audience seeing them as you move through the slides?

The suggestion is centered around the use case of creating presentations in Figma. It’s an important use case for my team because we like our research presentations to be page in our design files so it’s inline with our work and for reference. We also need to present our research to other who won’t be digging in the design file so using the prototype side to go through the presentation like a slide deck works but it lacks the presenters notes which help the present make sure they’re hitting key points as they present.
