How important is to have a monument site for your design system?
Bigger companies have a monument site where you can see pretty much everything that a design system has as far as components, documentation, design principles etc. I'm working on a Design System for the company I work for. I realized that there's no monument site that is…
'Allow overrides' functionality from Sketch
I'm looking at building a design system in Figma coming over from Sketch, with some components with elements that I'd like to prevent other people from editing (e.g they can't edit the colour of a button but can edit the button text) Is there any way for certain overrides to be…
Sharing libraries across organizations
Not sure if this is the right channel, but our team has a scenario where we'd like to share libraries with another team in another organization (aka design teams across different companies). Is that possible today and if not is it planned?
Quickly switching between color themes...
I am creating a design system for an app which will have multiple color palettes, for example a light and dark palette. I am creating groups of color styles using the slash naming convention, i.e: • support/01 = #hh3344 • support/02 = #hhdd00 …

Tracking component dependencies throughout a Team
One of the great benefits of building a component library in say, React, is that we can easily track which components (instances) are being used and where. This makes it much easier to understand which components are the most popular, and to better curate components over…
Hi, so we are having a problem with our assets inside a design-system.
Whenever we copy frames from one page to another (with the same design system active) The components don't get transferred. The properties are the same, but we have to basically redo everything. Anyone got any solution for that?
I'm building a theming system, both within Figma (so I can mock up white-labelled software for clients) and in code (to configure each client's product). In the code world, I'm specifying design tokens for colour using a two-tiered system: • Meta tokens: These are groups of…
Constraints for form fields
Hey guys! I'm trying to set constraints to my form fields so they'll resize properly. I can not for the life of me get it to work. I've tried so many different constraint combinations and nothing seems to work. So I have a form field that's built up with a border around it, text…
