Swipe/Drag Left and Right

Currently, there’s only “drag” as an option… In contrast invision for example has left and right. Figma however, can add multiple actions to a single object/component.

A good example/use case would be designing a tinder/dating app where you want to swipe both left and right on the card and go back and forth, or any other use where you want to go “around” and “back and forth”

The current drag does not allow this type of setup, however you could make multiple invisible layers/drag points on top of the object and assign those left/right, but considering Figma has/allows multiple actions on an object already this would be a hack and not desirable. It would be a better practice to separate the drag/swipe function into left and right and use the current multiple action functionality.

Thank you.
