4.1 Adding interactions

Let’s bring our designs to life! In this lesson, you’ll learn how to use interactions in your document to create interactive prototypes that help you validate your design.

Key learnings

  • To add an interaction, click on Create an Interaction in the Prototype tab of the Inspector or press I, then click on the Artboard you’d like to link your layer to.

  • Hotspots offer more control than links and are useful if you want to create a clickable area that’s larger than a single layer.

  • Start Points control which Artboard(s) your prototype will start from when you preview it.
