Introduction

  • Number variables in Figma can be applied to text elements to dynamically update values.

  • To apply a number variable to text, select the text element, click the variable icon under Text in the right menu sidebar, and choose the desired variable.

  • Number variables can be used in various design properties and prototyping actions, making them versatile for different design needs.

  • Interactive input fields can be created using number variables, allowing users to type and update values dynamically.

  • Figma supports different types of variables including string, number, color, and boolean.

Applying Number Variables [1]

  • Step 1: Select the text element where you want to apply the number variable.

  • Step 2: In the right menu sidebar, click the variable icon under the Text section.

  • Step 3: This will open the variables menu where you can select the desired number variable.

  • Number variables can dynamically update text values based on user input or other design changes.

  • This feature is useful for creating responsive and interactive designs.

Interactive Input Fields [2]

  • Figma allows the creation of interactive input fields using variables.

  • These input fields can be used to type and update any text dynamically.

  • Number variables can be linked to these input fields to capture and display numerical data.

  • Interactive input fields enhance the prototyping experience by allowing real-time data manipulation.

  • This feature is particularly useful for creating forms, calculators, and other interactive components.

Guide to Variables [3]

  • Variables in Figma store reusable values that can be applied to various design properties.

  • They help save time and ensure consistency across different design elements.

  • Figma supports different types of variables including string, number, color, and boolean.

  • Variables can be used in both design and prototyping to create dynamic and interactive elements.

  • A comprehensive guide to variables can be found on Figma's help center.

Using Variables in Prototypes [4]

  • Variables in Figma can represent design attributes or saved states.

  • They can be used to create dynamic and interactive prototypes.

  • Variables can be of different types including string, number, color, and boolean.

  • Using variables in prototypes allows for real-time data manipulation and interaction.

  • This feature is useful for creating realistic and functional prototypes.

Importing Variables [5]

  • To import variables into Figma, prepare a JSON file with the necessary variable collections.

  • Use the Variable Importer/Exporter plugin to import the JSON file into Figma.

  • This allows for easy transfer and management of variables across different projects.

  • Importing variables can save time and ensure consistency in design elements.

  • Detailed instructions for importing variables can be found on the Figma community page.
