Where are the main scrollbars?

Throughout my experience with figma, i can’t help but notice that in main containers throughout the “browseable” sections of the app there’s a distinct lack of basic scrollbars. I think that is pretty inaccessible. Sure, mouse wheel, keyboard navigation, and/or swipes can get you far, but not that far. You didn’t account for cases when mouse wheel/touchscreen/keyboard breaks or means of using it get more complicated. Please add the scrollbars in “browseable” sections like:

  • Recent/Drafts
  • Community
  • Profile
  • Settings
    and others not mentioned here.

Seriously people, that’s an a11y issue that affects everyone

How about to bring good old scrollbars back?
Please spare our mouse wheels from wiping to holes

when showing prototypes, not everyone notices that the flows may be hidden. I think showing a scrollbar would be a good idea. What do you think?
