Prototype Mode: Textbox and Connector Selection Conflict Upon Hover

  1. I am trying to close the loop on a prototype, and I selected a group of text to circle back to the very beginning. However, the connection is being blocked by the textbox width editor. When I hover, it doesn’t properly differentiate between the two features. See video screenshot.

  2. Video screenshot

  3. Is Figma aware of these competing features? Is there a way to successfully select the connection without activating the text box width editor?

Hi @Alexandra_Velez, I looked at your video and noticed that you selected two text layers, not group. There are several ways you can create interactions:

  1. Combine the text layers into a group or frame and drag out the connections;
  2. Select only one text layer and drag out the connections. Repeat for the second text layer.
