Vertical scrolling as Adobe xD

I love Figma for a lot of reasons, but there is one thing I’m struggling with.

In Adobe xD, when you want to make (for example) a projet of 1920*1080, with a vertical scroll, you juste have to activate vertical scrolling and set the viewport height (in this example, the viewport is 1080). This displays a blue lign which separates above the fold and below the fold (see image 1).

In this way, I can expand my frame while seeing all of my projects. In presentation mode, the prototype is displayed with the viewport height (1080).

But in Figma, this is much more complicated (or I just don’t use this how I’m supposed to, and a little help is welcome).

The best solution I found in Figma is to create a first frame of 1920*1080 with vertical scrolling, and then in this frame, create another frame with the height I want. All of the fixed objects are include in the first and main frame.

Moreover, this include to have all of my content not displayed with my final background. If I want this, I have to expand my pincipal frame while designing and set the correct viewport height while presenting.

I think Figma can get even better with this little fix.

I think the easiest way is to just set your prototype to a custom size of 1920x1080. Then any oversized frames will automatically scroll as you expect. No need to activate scrolling.

Holy… I found what you meant, thank you for the help. I don’t know why but I did not think to look out here…
