A step by step guide for creating a presentation overlay that shows page numbers.

The following tutorial assumes that you have created a Figma design file and recommends you integrate a design system as an external library.

Step One: Create a Frame

Click F and select a Presentation preset from the menu on the right side.

Step Two: Create the Overlay

Add the relevant elements to the presentation frame.

Once you are done, convert the presentation frame into a component (i.e. Overlay or PresentationOverlay).

Please note that will also need to create a separate frame and component for the PageNumber, which will need to sit within the Overlay.
