Is it possible simulate input field

How we can simulate text input areas? I searched on the net Craft Beta had this option and removed.

Do you think will you add again this feature?

Hi Yasin,

We’re currently tracking interest for this. I'm happy to open a feature request ticket on your behalf with our Support team. Please look for a message from them soon. 

I wanted to also provide a workaround, since we do not yet offer this interactivity within prototypes:

 

Mobile:

     1. Create a hotspot on the area that you'd like to be user input and have it display a keyboard overlay.
     2. Create a hotspot on the overlay that changes to a screen with the form filled out.


Desktop:

Create a hotspot on the form that resolves to another screen with the form filled out.

Thanks!

Shaina

This would be epic if you brought it back. Testing registration forms would be lit!

One more vote for this feature (already submitted as feature request). Testing Sign Up / Onboarding / any kind of form is very awkward without clickable text areas. Creating hotspot + prefilled fake content does not help user testing scenario very much.

Just wanted to pitch in and agree with the others. A feature that lets users have interactive input fields like text boxes/dropdowns would be a huge boon. It's very difficult to explain in user tests that the prefilled field is their name or some other similar context. Most of the time you have to pause the test just to explain it to them.

Simulating text input is an absolute must. It's the one thing keeping the old schoolers at work from moving over to Sketch from making HTML prototypes.
