Text Variables

Hello! This may be an extremely niche feature, but it would be amazing to have native pagination/text variables within Figma! I’ve been attempting to convert people on my job to using Figma as our primary tool for creating decks and presentations, but one of the primary sticking points that keeps us using InDesign is the ability to set text variables (think section titles, the current date, page number, etc etc) that automatically update. I’m aware of a plugin that sort of does this for page numbers, but having something the power and intuitiveness of InDesign’s use of this feature would be the nail in the coffin.

I think having more integrations to insert copy like this could definitely have other uses beyond the case I’ve named, but this alone would be an amazing add!
