Synchronizing text content across mockups (e.g. desktop and mobile)

Hey everyone!

We have a lot of mockups with exactly the same text across desktop + mobile. I’m tweaking text in desktop mockups and manually copy-pasting it to mobile versions, which is tedious and error-prone.

Is there a way (e.g. through a plugin) to link two or more text boxes so that when I edit one, the text changes are automatically synchronized to the other?

Thanks for any help!

You can use text variables for that: https://help.figma.com/hc/en-us/articles/14506821864087/#h_01H9V3QSVH6TY6982N7YG6QS22 as a bonus you can have multiple modes for the same text fields, e.g. for different languages.

Interesting, thanks! So far we’ve only used variables for styles, not for actual content.
