Variable cursor in prototypes

+100000 It’s helpful for website experience.

This would be so helpful! Agree with Sohrab that web design features are often overlooked.

This would indeed be extremely helpful! +1 !!

I needed a hand cursor for hover effects for component variants so I added an on-click with open link action for a work around.

+1 Yes please! So urgently needed! I am really wondering why this is not implemented yet, feels like very basic to me.

Hi Bryon,

was thinking the same but cannot manage it to work.
If I try it I have to give the “open link” a link target (which is missleading because of course the user should not be able actually click and open whatever link), otherwise the cursor will not change. Am I missing something?

Would you mind explaining how you have achieved that?

Thanks in advance & Cheers,
Manuel

I’d love to have a custom cursor while prototyping.

Maybe whenever a user wants to explore various hover states, they could have the cursor change. That way when things are clickable, etc we could explore a more realistic interaction within a custom website UI.

Taking it a step further, it’d be cool to have the ability to see the cursor change in real time whenever prototyping. Right now the burden is on the interaction/animation to tell if something is working. Even just having the arrow / finger setup would be more indicative than the touch ball thingy.

Another +1! Would really love this feature to be added. I’m working on a site with a simple image gallery/slideshow and wanted to have the cursor change to a custom arrow cursor on hover. Hopefully this will be implemented soon!

Here’s my +1
A set of default cursors to chose from and the ability to include a custom cursor would be absolutely nuts. Yes please!

This was a great suggestion! Thanks.

I did the same and just used the “close overlay” link option. I suppose that won’t ‘always’ work, but unless you are IN an overlay, it seems like it would.

Still…get it together Figma! These are basic needs.

Looking forward to this! Sensible defaults would be great when you add an interaction.

@Schiller_Abendzeit have a look into this maybe it will help.

would ideal, for example… if you create a disabled button, you can change the cursor to forbidden símbol :slightly_smiling_face:

This would be great!

It would also be helpful for making entire components targets to indicate that you can select something without producing a hover state.

+1 - would really love this feature, to properly mimic browser behavior - ie. when hovering disabled buttons.

+1 This would be a really nice-to-have feature! Even adding the disabled cursor for “disabled” elements would be fantastic.

Agree. I was also looking for that feature.

+1 I’d also appreciate this a lot

+1, really would be helpful for evaluating microinteractions.
