Figma Support Forum

Support for "…" shortcut (three dot glyph)

  1. Describe the problem your experiencing and how your idea helps solve this
    “Option/Alt” + “.” does not produce anything. This is common shortcut for “…”.

  2. Add as much context as possible (screenshots, Figma files, mockups, etc.)
    Present in adobe xd and likely finds enough use in UI design and other contexts. Far more preferable to individually typing out three dots or pasting it.

Just to add more explanation to this - when a fixed height text box content exceeds the frame, it should auto-append the ‘…’ the same way it works in HTML

I think this might be a different thing? I believe @t8d was asking for common text shortcuts. For example creating bullets, em-dashes, 3 dashes to make a divider line, etc. Figma doesn’t support all of these.

The auto-append feature you mention I think is more related to this: Clip and ellipsize text in Fixed size text blocks
